While you are in Bandon, Or. you need to take the short 5 mile trip to see this old lighthouse. The views of the Coquille River are fantastic and area is peaceful. You can walk around the lighthouse and take some awesome pictures.

The docents are very well informed and had a lot of interesting points to make about the history of the lighthouse. The lighthouse itself is not handicapped accessible.

I have been here a couple of times before and it was never open. I was open when I came and very interesting to talk to the docent and gift shop woman. The lighthouse has been restored after it went into quite disrepair and vandalism.

Must visit. You can get front row seats to the crashing waves and the ocean's power by walking to the end of the rock jetty.

Even though there is very little sign direction, it is worth the confusion to get to the lighthouse and the beautiful beach next door.

There are interesting photos and displays and various gift items inside the light house, plus park staff to answer any questions. You can't climb the stairs inside because of a renovation project. Nearby wild wind swept beach with large driftwood.

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
