“Too quiet for camping”

Bullards Beach State Park
Ranked #3 of 23 things to do in Bandon
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Lots of rv's instead of tents, 10
PM quiet time which I think is just way too early for camping, both nights we were told at 10:45 that we were too loud, 9 pm it gets dark so if you don't like fun at the campfire stay here! Raccoons are big problem w your food! Campsites very close together, 5$ firewood that is too big to burn and too hard to chop!

My family and I have stayed here probably 10 times. For some reason I have never written a review. My parents usually bring their RV and my brother and I both get Yurts. First off, I'm glad to report that the mosquito issue seems to be taken care of. I know last summer they were terrible, but it seems to be a lot better now.
We almost always stay in the C-loop because there is a great combination of Yurt sites and RV sites. The Yurts are awesome. Just the money we save in gas because we don't have to haul our camp trailer, makes up the difference in price. They have heat, electricity, and sleeping for at least 5-6 people. The less the better though. If you get a rainy day, they can seem cramped. There is a porch in front, which is a great place to store things that you don't want to be damp in the morning, like chairs and any food. While I'm talking about food, make sure you secure everything in a tightly closed ice chest or a large tote that locks as well. There are a ton of racoons in the park. While they're fairly entertaining, they can be a pain. If you leave anything out that they can eat, you will be up most of the night running them off.
The park is always clean and very family friendly. The FREE showers are always really clean and very warm. The best thing about Bullards is the location. You're only a few miles from Bandon, Oregon. A great town with nice shops, restaurants, crabbing, fishing, and world class golf.
A word of advice. If you want to reserve a Yurt, you need to do so 9 months in advance. Otherwise, you might as well forget it. There is a Yurt village, that's a little easier to get into, but it's not as nice as the ones in the 3 loops.

We took site B64. Had great Verizon internet signal access. Super quiet, on a corner, only three spaces from restrooms and free showers. Only a few spaces from the greatest trail to the beach too!

Hot showers...no adjustments to temp needed. Simply push a button which lasts a minute or so then push again. No cost. They were clean with white tile walls and cement flooring.

Now let me tell you about this trail my German Shepherd and I took from loop B to the beach...3/4 mile each way. Part is shared with horses, but we did not encounter any. Difficult to walk in sections as it is sand and like walking on an actual beach. Clearly marked with posts and signage. A small muddy spot, but not a big issue. Beautiful varied vegetation you walk through. The beach was windy, but pristine. Not another living soul, house or anything other than water, sky, sand, driftwood and pebbles and a few shells as the waves roared in and sand blew. Mark your entrance with a log or something so you can easily find the trail back and ENJOY!

This is the place for the birds. the best way stop salt water marsh on the way from Canada to San Francisco. Millions of birds visit. The sport is partially improved by a Federal program and very convenient on both sides of HWY 101 just north of Bandon, Oregon. Complete your visit with a stop at South Slough National Estuary, a five star attraction for sure.

Love this campground and park! Right by the beach and the Coquille Lighthouse, It's perfect for a little relaxing coast getaway. If you don't have a camper, and you don't want to tent camp it, then look into a yurt. They're really neat, and all you need to bring is your bedding, food, and whatever else you want for entertainment. Also the price you pay for the location you'll be staying at is well worth it!
