  • I have talked about the Dungeness Recreation Area Camping and hiking previously. This time I will tell you about the Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse. To reach the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge trav...  more »
  • It is a long 5.5 mile hike. It's much easier at low tide. The lighthouse keepers gave us a very informative tour. It is definitely worth the long walk but you should be in pretty good shape to return ...  more »
  • This walk is not for people with bad knees or legs, as it is over 5.5 miles in each direction on a sandy and rocky beach. On very stormy days the water will cover the spit and sometimes wash out a sec...  more »

  • This is a magical place, filled with significant history, as well as the beautiful natural surroundings. The experience of staying at the Lighthouse as Keepers for the week is so special. Get up before the dawn to go watch the sunrise from the tower, and see the wildlife in their early morning patrols. Amazing!
  • It's a 55. mile level beach walk along the spit to get to the lighthouse. Strongly advise timing your walk to coincide with lower tides. There is great flat packed sand walking a low tide, below several feet of tide. Up to about 5 feet of tide you'll still find good walking, though a bit limited. Beyond that, its a loose gravel trudge. Great views across the Strait and of Mt. Baker, but it's a bit tedious because one mile is pretty much like the next. But the lighthouse is a great reward, with lawn, picnic tables, toilet, and water, as well as a small museum and you can go up into the light. Good cell phone reception out there too!
  • Wonderful wonderful hike out and the museum and going up in the lighthouse is a great experience. Go on a falling tide.
  • Very very good place! Just watch out of seagulls, they steal your food.
  • Long walk (5.5 miles each way) but so worth it!
