Attractions and Recreation Opportunities

Cape Blanco Lighthouse


From the Siuslaw River to the California border, the Coos Bay District of the BLM offers a rich and diverse outdoor recreation resource for you to explore. Within the District's 300,000 acres of public land are 12 miles of coastline; 350 miles of fishable forest streams; 700 acres of coastal marshlands and estuaries; and over 1,500 miles of forest roads and trails.

Cape Blanco Lighthouse

Cape Blanco Lighthouse, first operational on December 20, 1870, is the southernmost lighthouse in Oregon and holds at least four Oregon records: oldest continuously operating light, most westerly, highest above the sea (245 feet), and Oregon's first woman lighthouse keeper.

Visitor hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (gates close and lock at 3:30). Guided tours through the lighthouse are offered April through October, Tuesday through Sunday. Tours are subject to cancellation due to weather.
