I was excited to finally get to this lighthouse... but unfortunately, it was disappointing once actually seeing it in person! Its just a lot smaller than I imagined it!

You can easily view this from the "town" side of the river, or, you can take the 10-12 minute drive thru Bullard's park to very near the base of the lighthouse, itself, which I did. Interesting historical sign, putting this smallish old lighthouse into context....More

The lighthouse was beautiful, as most are, but there wasn't signage for it, we just drove toward the river until we found it. The area it is in is at the end of 'old town', and there wasn't landscaping or any apparent pride in the...More

Have been to many Oregon beaches, but this is the first time we have seen so many people surf fishing. They were catching Surf Perch right on the beach and lots of them.

Take the drive that follows the river and estuary, past the campground. There are a couple parking lots back there, with at least one unisex pit toilet building. The lighthouse is open at times, and manned by volunteers. It's never been open when we were...More

Amazing historic lighthouse, erected in the 1890's. The views in this area are breathtaking. The beach near the lighthouse is covered in huge driftwood. From every angle, the photo opportunities are endless :)

This old lighthouse is very picturesque standing on the bank of the river, at the Pacific Ocean. Great photos can be taken at the site or across the river. The lighthouse accessible via Bullards Beach State Park, just south of Bandon on the south side...More

The lighthouse is easy to access. Very short hike from the parking lot. At one time you could drive right by it, but part of the road has been washed away. There were large chunks of driftwood on the road. It was a startling reminder...More

There is parkimg nearby and a paved walkway right up to the lighthouse. There shouldn't be any problems getting there with a walker.

To park, yes. Turning around maybe. It depends on how big of truck and trailer and how many other guests there are. However the road it is on its not a busy road and banking into the driveway or out shouldn't be difficult. I... More

You can not park close to the Lighthouse, single lane road. There is a wider lot further back, but the parking can be full. The campground is nearby, maybe you can leave the trailer there.
