We were sad to see that the lighthouse built in 1913 was no longer being kept in repair. That being said, it is a lovely setting and worth stopping to see!

This was a nice outing - the park is great - lots of trails - and lots of peaceful places. Views from the park are wonderful and it appears they have great rentals for individuals and groups.

Skip this area, there is absolutely nothing to see here except another angle of the sound. Skip this lighthouse, not much to look at except for people fishing on the shore and a few buildings with a light bulb on top of a small pole!...More

This low lighthouse is actually being used by the University of Washington as a research facility. The light runs by computer. If you are at Fort Flagler State Park, a quick look at the lighthouse is worthwhile. You can not go in the building, but...More
