Bullards Beach State Park


Campground Description:  Bullards Beach State Park is owned and operated by the State of Oregon.  Bullards Beach is an extremely popular Oregon State Park due to the more pleasant than average weather and the abundance of activities both in and outside of the park.  Downtown Bandon offers shops, restaurants and more tourist activities than can be enjoyed in a mere afternoon.  Some of the very best fish and chips is available on the Warf in a tiny blue and white building (people come from as far as 50 miles away just for the fish and ships).  The park offers beach combing, hiking, kite flying, a historic lighthouse, bird watching and mammal watching.  All RV camping sites and tent camping sites have a paved pad for vehicle parking.  Full shopping and services are available in Bandon.  Open year round.  Reservations are available and strongly recommended during the summer season.

Number of Sites:  103 full-hookup sites (sewer, electricity, water), 82 electrical sites with water, 13 yurts (one pet-friendly)

Electricity:  At 185 RV camping and tent camping sites

Water:  At every RV camping and tent camping site

Sewer:  At 103 RV camping sites

Waste Water Dump Station:  Yes

Directions:  From Highway 101 Northbound or Southbound - Watch for Park Road, 2.2 miles north of downtown Bandon, Oregon.  Turn west onto Park Road and follow 120 yards to the entrance booth.

Fishing:  Bullards Beach State Park offers fishing and crabbing opportunities and boat launch facilities on the Coquille River.  In Bandon's harbor area there are several deep sea fishing charters.  The Coquille River offers world class Salmon and Steelhead fishing.  Finally, surfcasting is often very productive for sea perch. 

The Bandon high dock is a favorite place for crabbing and fishing. Rent a crab cage for 1/2 day or all day costing approximately $8.00 to $10.00 a day. Dungeness crab, thought by many to be among the sea's finest delicacies, is thick in this area from midsummer to late fall, and available most of the rest of the year.

Astronomy Opportunities:  Within the camping area there are few areas open enough for telescope camping.  A far better bet is to set up a telescope farther down Park Road near the lighthouse.  For those with computerized telescopes the exact position of the lighthouse is 43.12479 N, 124.42367 W.  Laying on a blanket on the beach with binoculars is a great astronomy camping activity.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
