The oldest lighthouse in the state, Cape Blanco Lighthouse sits atop wind-swept bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. These bluffs, the western-most point of land in Oregon, provide an unparalleled opportunity to watch California gray whales and other marine mammals.
The site's proximity to the Cape Blanco State Park provides visitors with camping, hiking, and beach combing opportunities in addition to a lighthouse visit.
