Part of the Umpqua River State Park in Douglas County and just above Winchester Bay, the historic Umpqua River Lighthouse, which offers guided tours in the summer months, was built between 1891 and 1894.
This lighthouse has been fully restored and carries a rich history that includes Indian raids, drowning tragedies, and bad weather destroying the original structure, which has now been restored for summer tours.
