Yaquina Bay State Park is located in Newport at the north end of Yaquina Bay near its outlet to the Pacific Ocean. The bluff is forested with spruce and pine, but the real star is the Historic Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, built in 1871. This piece of Oregon's history sits atop a bluff at the mouth of the Yaquina River.
Yaquina Bay Light is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It is the only existing Oregon lighthouse with the living quarters attached, and the only historic wooden Oregon lighthouse still standing.
On December 7, 1996 Yaquina Bay Lightstation was officially restored as a privately maintained aid to navigation.
