Bullards Beach State Park

56489 Bullard Beach Road

Bullards Beach is a large, family-oriented park located just two miles north of Bandon. The campground is nestled among shore pines and well protected from the strong ocean breezes. Besides three loops of campsites, the park boasts 13 yurts, making year-round camping a very popular choice.

The horse camp features easy access to the beach and dunes for our equestrian campers. Well known for excellent fishing and crabbing opportunities on the Coquille River, our boat launch facilities are well-used 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 across a plain to the sandy dunes. All along the path are views of the beautiful Coquille River. Across the river is Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, sporting a variety of resident and migrating wildlife. Be sure to bring your binoculars!

The historic Coquille River Lighthouse is located at the end of the beach access road in the park. It's staffed from mid-May through the end of September with park volunteers who interpret the history of the area. From this point, there are 4.5 miles of open beach to explore. Bring your mountain bike to ride along the hard-packed sand along the edge of the surf, or just enjoy a leisurely 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 state parks on Beach Loop Drive. For more information on the local area, visit the Tourist Information Center in Old Town.

One of the cleanest OR State Park campgrounds that we've been to over the past few years. Our site had clearly been raked down and tidied up prior to our arrival ... sometime all OR State Park used to do. Both restrooms and showers were spotless clean and smelling fresh even tho lots of campers here which contrasts with the other recent state park we'd stayed at. Rangers and hosts were clearly visible and busy around the park. Kudos to the Park Manager for their hard work so campers can enjoy and relax!

This is one of my favorite parks. The beaches are awesome here. The light house area is a really cool. Bathrooms are always clean, the park is well kept. Super friendly staff. Very close to Bandon, which is one of my favorite coast towns. And the beach at the Bandon state park is one of my favorite beach on the Oregon coast. A must visit in the evening for an awesome sunset. We will always come back.

We really enjoyed our trip. The campground was comfortable. We enjoyed all the activities planned for kids! Love how close it is to the Coquille River Lighthouse. Beautiful area. Quick drive into Bandon and all the awesome stuff in historic downtown. Great experience, and I hope to go back again soon.

My wife and I have been driving out toward the Coquille River Light for 3 decades. It is harder for us getting over the dune to the ocean than it used to be. We still love it though we make the journey less often than we used. Beautifully maintained park of which all that work there should be proud!

We have been spending time at Bullards Beach for over 30 years and hope to go there for 30more years. One of our favorite spots. Oregon parks and beaches are the very best.
