Other Lighthouse Information:
It is located in the Heceta Head Lighthouse State Scenic Viewpoint (State Park). On the grounds, besides the lighthouse, there's the 1893 two-story keeper's house, fog signal building, two oil houses, and a garage. It is probably the most recognized lighthouse on the west coast. Heceta Head lighthouse is the most powerful light along the Oregon coast. The Keepers of Heceta Head Lightstation was formed in 2010. In August 2011 the lighthouse tower began the $1.6 million restoration and in June 2013 the tower reopened to the public. During the two year restoration of the inside and the outside, the grounds and shop were still open.

The Lighthouse Hunters Experience:
It's hard to believe we were only here one time. In the morning we had clouds while we took our distant pictures of the lighthouse. Then we drove to the lighthouse, paid for the tour and walked a half mile to the lighthouse. We even climbed the lighthouse, this was the 6th lighthouse we've climbed. The Oregon coast is beautiful! After our tour we went back to take distant shots while the sun was out. We want to go back.
