We were there just prior to a major storm, and at this time of year it isn't open, but the road out there was open. It was quiet, and as charming a miniature lighthouse as you could find anywhere. With the oncoming storm, the seas were up, it's easy to see why they would have placed a light house at... More

Worth a stop if you have time on your hands. It is a short drive from 101. Not much to see but the volunteers try to make it interesting.

Each time I visit here the staff are friendly and the LH and surrounding ocean scenery are tops. The LH is small, but historic and has been around a long time. Very rustic old place with the surrounding beach full of driftwood and tiny driftwood shelters some of the beachcombers build to get out of the wind. The shelters get... More

Coquille River lighthouse is not a well known as some of the others along the coast (Yaquina (Head and Bay), Umpqua, or Blanco, but is well worth the visit. To access enter Bullard’s Beach state park and continue to the end of the road. Great views of the bar and Bandon from the lighthouse. In addition, the lighthouse is very... More

Every time we come to Bandon, I love to take photos of this. Very scenic! It does get fogged in a bit though.

We were too early for the lighthouse to be open. We loved walking on the jetty, though, and exploring the area. A beautiful view and great way to experience the power of the ocean. The waves had deposited a large tree trunk and boulders on top of the jetty.

The lighthouse is undergoing repair. You can not climb in the tower and the lower level is more gift shop than anything else. They have repainted the lighthouse and it does not wow as before

Drive out to the Coquille Lighthouse was easy and pleasant. Parking was plentiful. Beach area makes for a nice stroll. Seeing the lighthouse was also very interesting. Would definitely go back.

Stopped on our way in to Bandon. Very nice couple serving as host. It was a beautiful clear day, lots of boats fishing for salmon. There were more items for sale than history info, but still a very nice place to stop.

Its a small lighthouse and worth a visit but if the surf is up the real fun is walking out the jetty and dodging the spray. You have to climb over a small dune the the jetty has a concrete center for easy walking with a few logs strewn around for good contrast.
