Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This is a very old lighthouse on the Oregon Coast, South Coast- Bandon. It's a fabulous view. They are working to raise funds to restore it. I hope they get it done. Built in late 1800's. It's worth seeing!

  • It's a beautiful Light House and very easy to find
  • Love this little beacon with its black rock, exciting jetty and driftwood boneyard. It's good to see volunteers giving tours of it and hope they can some day open the pilot house to tourists.
