Bring the whole family to Bullards Beach State Park!

The three campground loops are set among shore pine, protecting the campsites from strong ocean winds. Rent one of the park’s 13 yurts year-round for one of the cheapest sleeps on the Oregon Coast.

Bullards Beach is horse-friendly and quite popular with equestrian campers; the horse campsites have east access to the beach and dunes.

Fishermen and crabbers often make this park their base for the east access to the Coquille River.

Birdwatchers will love the paved pathway to the beach that meanders through beach dunes and grasslands near the Coquille River.  The Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge is just on the other side.

Also within the park is the historic Coquille River Lighthouse, staffed May through October.
