Bullards Beach is a large, family-oriented park located two miles north of Bandon. The campground is nestled among shore pines and protected from strong ocean breezes.

Equestrians will enjoy the park's horse camp and access to the beach and dunes. A refurbished hiker/biker camp offers storage lockers with solar powered USB charging ports.

A boat launch on the Coquille River provides access to excellent fishing and crabbing.

A mostly paved path to the beach begins near the campground registration booth. The path weaves for just over a mile through the open, grassy fields and lowland forest to the sandy dunes. Enjoy views of the Coquille River and Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge on the opposite bank.

Explore 4.5 miles of beach at the end of Bullards Beach Road. 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.

In nearby Bandon, enjoy shops, galleries and restaurants. Learn the legend of Face Rock and access miles of shoreline at state parks on Beach Loop Drive. For more information on the local area, visit the Tourist Information Center in Bandon's Old Town.


Coquille River Lighthouse 
The historic lighthouse is located at the end of Bullards Beach Road. The signal room is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from mid-May through September. It's staffed with volunteers who interpret the history of the area. Tower is closed to the public for safety concerns. Information: 541-347-2209.
