At the Lighthouse

When you are at the lighthouse you will find picnic tables, a drinking fountain, a clean public restroom and lush green grass on which to rest.

Volunteer keepers  are available to provide free guided tours of the museum and tower between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. seven days a week.  Learn about the history of the light station and the Dungeness Spit.  The museum contains information about the lighthouse, native Americans who lived in the area and the New Dungeness Light Station Association.  You can climb the 74 steps to the top of the lighthouse where you can get a wonderful panoramic view of the Spit and Refuge as well as the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Canada.   For safety reasons, visitors are not permitted to go outside the lantern room onto the gallery (catwalk).

Other buildings at the light station are closed to the public as is the area beyond the lighthouse and the south side of the spit.
