  • So so parking, but a great ocean view. Uncovered whale watching deck. Historical museum with lighthouse tours available. Lake Marie is right around the curve with sand beach and pic-nic tables a plenty.
  • Great at night! Loved the rotating light and the tour was well worth it. The museum was packed full of wonders and learning. Kids loved the gift shop.
  • We had a great tour of the lighthouse from our docent, Dorsey. The museum and gift shop afterwards was also great. Highly recommended.
  • A quite nice lighthouse with great views of the coast.
  • Lived next to it for 3 years during one of my tours with the amazing Umpqua River Motor Life Boat Coast Guard unit located just down the hill in Winchester Bay. I miss it! Spectacular view!!
