Following the original 135 cast-iron steps, you will reach the lantern room underneath a green metal structure on the top.

  • Check out the lighthouse on the way to the beach. They do charge to enter. Great peaceful day.
  • Grays Harbor Lighthouse is a nice lighthouse visit and photograph on the coast of Washington state.
  • Awesome tour, found the history very interesting, all built by men and women using just block and tackle, amazing. What a majestic view of the area. LOVED IT
  • The tour to the top is $5 per person. Our tour guide was full of interesting facts and history about the lighthouse. It was fun getting to see the lens up close and learn all about the light station.
  • Very weirdly placed lighthouse. A lot of mosquitoes to contend with and it's open odd hours.
