Coquille River Lighthouse, Bandon

4.4
#2 of 13 in Things to do in Bandon
This page is dedicated to the Coquille River Lighthhouse (often referred to as the "Bandon Lighthouse"), located in the Bullards Beach State Park across the river from the Town of Bandon in Oregon State. The Lighthouse lies only a few hundred yards North and West of Bandon across the Coquille River, but the entrance to Bullards Beach State Park is actually 2 miles North of Bandon off Highway 101. From the Park entrance, the Lighthouse is reached along a winding road which cuts through dune areas to Bullards Beach. This is the only way to reach the lighthouse by vehicle. The Lighthouse can also be reached from the North via Bullards Beach itself.

  • A nice lighthouse with a beautiful view. If you time it right, you may see a whale swim by.
  • A picturesque lighthouse at the far end of Bullard's Beach State Park. You can't climb it, but you can go inside the main floor, which is now a gift ago and interpretive center run by volunteers. There is plenty of parking, and you can spend hours on the lovely beach surrounded by driftwood. Also, lots of trails and recreational areas in Bullard's Beach Park itself.
  • Staff very helpful and friendly. Beautiful views. Perfect for taking pictures of the light house and Beach and the Oregon coast.
  • Kudos on the open access. Unfortunately it had severely deteriorated and access to the tower was restricted. One of the less appealing light houses.
  • I loved this lighthouse! It's fun and interesting to photograph. Also, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The lady talked for a long time about the history of it. I'm happy that we visited.
