Coquille River Lighthouse

A nice place to stop and get your toes in the sand. The lighthouse is fun to get pictures of, lots of parking, lots of tourists.

The light house is beautiful and it's a great place to hunt agates and collect drift wood. The lighthouse is not open everyday but it's fun when it is open.

Needs a whole new upgrade, government run so it is run down, a private investor is what is needed to make this a really nice place.

It was pouring rain and the wind was blowing. The light house wasn't open so all you could do is walk around the outside. It really isn't a large light house but interesting to see.

Our fault possibly for not top review. We were travelling south and missed the turn that would have taken us out to the lighthouse. It didn't look all that exciting from afar for us to backtrack. Every lighthouse on the coast is unique and is lovely to photograph. Would like to see it up close someday.

This is a cute lighthouse with a bit of history, but there's not much to it. A few steps to the top where the Plexiglas windows are fogged and hard to see through. No light, just a small open space. The downstairs is OK, small gift shop and some interpretive plaques.

Visited several times over the years. Always a neat place to visit. If fact the 4th of july firewooks are set off across the road from here.

Amazing driftwood! Easy walk to the beach. Lighthouse is small but worthy of a stop. Great stop to exercise our dog.

Short drive from Bandon through Bullards Beach, the lighthouse is very cool. Wear a jacket though, it is windy and cold even on a clear day.

This lighthouse is conveniently right off highway101 in Brandon. Admission to the State Park is free. There is plenty of parking. The lighthouse is not open to the public, but it is very accessible for photography.
