Central Coast Lighthouse Keepers

Central Coast Lighthouse Keepers logo

Central Coast Lighthouse Keepers (CCLK) serves Pt. Sur State Historic Park. It was formed in May 1993 as a membership-based, non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving the maritime heritage of the Central Coast of California, especially the aids to navigation. It promotes awareness, knowledge and understanding of the role of the lighthouses at Pt. Sur (1889) and Pt. Pinos (1855).

CCLK supports the many activities of the volunteers who conduct the interpretive walking tours and perform preservation and restoration work at Pt. Sur. It also raises funds for work on the buildings and trails of the Pt. Sur State Historic Park. CCLK has no paid employees. The CCLK/State Parks partnership has accomplished the complete restoration of the Carpenter/Blacksmith Shop (1999), Barn (2000), the Lighthouse buildings (2001) and the Water Tower (2001).

Through the Cooperating Associations Program, California State Parks has valuable relationships with more than 80 cooperating associations authorized pursuant to Public Resources Code 513.  The association on this page is one of these official organizations.  Like other associations it is dedicated to enhancing the educational and interpretive programs in California State Parks. 

Cooperating associations are related to, but independent of the state parks they serve.  They are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as charitable nonprofit organizations (IRS 501 (c) 3).

Many cooperating associations have websites.  California State Parks encourages you to visit these websites, however does not guarantee their content or accuracy.
