Lighthouse and Museum

Battery Point Lighthouse is perhaps the most visited structure in all of Del Norte County in spite of the fact it is only accessible at low tide. The rest of the day it is an island located just offshore of Crescent City at the foot of ‘A’ Street. Be sure to plan your visit to the Lighthouse while in Crescent City while the tides are out. The Island is open to the public whenever the tide permits, however Battery Point Lighthouse is only open for tours to the public as announced each year during the months of April through September, and again, only during certain hours, tide permitting.
