Oregon Coast Lighthouses

Light Houses

This Oregon weekend lets visit some fascinating places along the coast.

Lighthouses have been part of the Oregon coast since 1857, when the Umpqua River house was first lit. Unfortunately due to poor planning and a bad survey the structure collapsed from being battered by winter storms and the pounding of the high seas.

Today there are eleven structures still standing along the Oregon coast. They are as far north as Tillamook Rock and as far south as Port of Brookings. Two of the houses, Cleft of the Rock and Pelican Bay are privately owned and can only be seen from a distance.

Several have been restored and a visit to them is like a visit to the past. Click on any in the list below to get information on a particular location.

Tillamook Rock Heceta Head
Cape Meares Umpqua River
Yaquina Head Cape Arago
Yaquina Bay Coquille River
Cleft of the Rock Cape Blanco
Pelican Bay
