The Umpqua Lighthouse is located on the Oregon Coast at the opening of the Umpqua River on Winchester Bay. This lighthouse was built in 1855 and first lit in 1857, and is a popular Winchester Bay tourist spot. Most visitors come here for a beautiful view of Winchester Bay from an elevated vantage point and the gift shop at the base has something for everyone to take home as a souvenir. The tour guides here are often mentioned on the internet reviews for their extensive knowledge on the subject of the lighthouse and the interiors of the lighthouse make for great photos on social media.

Umpqua Lighthouse Reviews & Ratings
We have visited all of the OREGON light houses..Chuck was our guide, by FAR the best yet. Thanks Chuck and to your lovely wife for treating us like guests and showing us the coast's most prized possession.
This was a wonderful place to visit! I highly reccomend the light house tour. Very informative and not expensive. Our tour was an hour if not more. Our tour guide clearly had a passion for the light house and its history surrounding. Be sure to leave a donation! The people there were all volunteers and were all so kind! I would definitely come back if were ever in the area again!
The lookout parking area is free, and the view for watching sunsets is excellent. The light house tour and the museum next door cost, but are worth the time.
One of many lighthouses along the Oregon coast. This was also a whale watching spot. Later in the year.
I would strongly suggest you go and see this light house at night. It has a red lense which is not common on light houses. It was beautiful.
