Built in 1898 to assist ships near the mouth of the Columbia River, the North Head Lighthouse is one of only a few lighthouses along our state's coast that's open to the public. The lighthouse grounds can be used for your ceremony only, and you will need to host the reception in another location. The North Head Lighthouse Keepers' Residence is available nearby for your honeymoon or other overnight stay.

The lighthouse overlook can accommodate up to 25 guests outside, and there are restrooms available in the park. Water and electricity are not provided.
