Owner description: Nineteenth-century lighthouse is one of a few on the Pacific coast that was built with the light-keeper's quarters in the same building.

We visit the Oregon Coast over Easter every year, while I knew we wouldn’t be able to tour the lighthouse, since we were there off-season, I didn’t think they’d have a locked gate to keep you from seeing it up close. Grounds and views are beautiful though!

Nice place to visit, except in cold windy weather. Access to the lighthouse and was able to climb up to the light floor (could look into room but could not access). Got a up close view of the light system.

A short drive off the west side of highway 101, just north of the Newport city limits, this is a worthwhile place to drive through, but ideally to get out of one's vehicle, walk around, and take in the wonderful views.
