Bullards Beach State Park is a great, family-friendly park with lots of options for outdoor and history enthusiasts. Located just north of Bandon on the southern Oregon coast, this park and day use area includes picnic areas and group picnic shelters with barbecues and horseshoe pits.

Beach access is at the end of the road, and you will also find the historic Coquille River Lighthouse there as well. Interpretive signs provide information about the geology of the area and how Oregon's unique coastline has been affected by tsunamis. Bullards Beach stretches for more than 4 miles, and it is perfect for the beach comber looking for shells, driftwood, or wildlife. Birds such as brown pelicans, cormorants, and gulls can be seen on the beach, and harbor seals can be spotted in the surf.

A profound concept originally envisioned by governor Oswald West, in 1967 the Oregon legislature ultimately realized his vision of making the entire Oregon Coast forever open to the public in a piece of landmark legislation titled the Oregon Beach Bill, officially making all 363 miles public land. "The People's Coast" is truly a one-of-a-kind coastline, a unique blend of mountains and rocky stacks, towering old growth forests, marine sanctuaries, tide pools and kelp forests, charming towns, historic fishing communities, world-class golfing, breweries, and simply jaw-dropping scenic beaches.
