Bullards Beach is a large, family-oriented park located two miles north of Bandon. The campground is nestled among shore pines and  protected from the strong ocean breezes. The park offers three loops of campsites, all of which are equipped with at least water and electrical hook-ups.  In addition, the park boasts thirteen Yurts (six of which are pet-friendly).

The horse camp features access to the beach and dunes for our equestrian campers. A refurbished hiker/ biker camp offers storage lockers that contain solar powered USB charging ports for electronic devices. Well known for excellent fishing and crabbing opportunities on the Coquille River, our boat launch facilities remain busy during the summer and fall seasons.

From the registration booth in the campground, take a walk or bike ride on the mostly paved pathway to the beach (a little more than a mile). The path weaves through the open, grassy fields and lowland forest  to the sandy dunes. All along the path are views of the Coquille River. Across the river is Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, sporting a variety of wildlife.

The historic Coquille River Lighthouse is located at the end of Bullards Beach Road. It's staffed from mid-May through the September with volunteers who interpret the history of the area. From this point, there are 4.5 miles of beach to explore. Bring your mountain bike to ride the hard-packed sand along the edge of the surf, or just enjoy a stroll along the ocean shore.
And there's more nearby. Across the river is Bandon by the Sea. Visit a variety of shops, galleries, and restaurants in the town that is called "The Cranberry Capitol of the World," as well as the "The Storm Watching Capitol of the World." Learn the legend of Face Rock and access miles of shoreline at our day-use parks on Beach Loop Drive. For more information on the local area, visit the Tourist Information Center in Old Town.

Coquille River Lighthouse
Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from mid-May through September. While visitors are no longer able to access the tower due to safety concerns, the fog/ signal room remains open.  Call the park office at 541-347-2209 for information.
