great park

The yurt sites are big enough for a tent also. Short walk to the beach. There are lots of things to visit within a short drive.

Fun in the sun

The kids played in the river. Watched people playing frisbee golf on a world class course. Had a good night's sleep almost no noise. They now have 3 hurts, one overlooks the river in the newer camp area and the other 2 overlook the old camp area. They have a boat ramp and the fishing is good here. It's halfway between Roseburg and Glide.


Great swimming hole

We stayed in campsite 1 down closest to the river. The bathrooms were up the hill. It now has 10 campsites. The view of the falls is great. The water was a little cold for me but the kids loved it. The sites are rustic. No water or power and no flush toilets. But it is quiet and beautiful. There were some locals using the swimming hole with us. The camp host was great. The camp grounds is 15 miles from Glide up little river rd.

Had fun in the wind

We had fun on the beach playing in the sand and watching the people wind surfing and kite surfing. There is a lake that had wind coming from the south for 3 months out of the year. People from all over the world come to surf there. Met people from Nicaragua who had come just to surf. The bathrooms were not that nice and are not very ada accessible but next summer they will have new ones. The hosts are great. They had trees close enough to hang the hammock. There are no playgrounds for the kids. Everyone I the camp was asleep by 8:30pm. They are hard to get into in the summer. Have to reserve early.


Had an amazing time

Had an amazing time at the beach. The breach access is a one lane curvy road kind of scary to drive down. The camp host was very helpful. We visited the historic Hughes house that is on the park grounds. It was built in 1898 and they have tours. The lighthouse is the oldest on the Oregon coast and you can get a tour of it. There are a bunch of trails for people and horses. There are 4 rustic cabins and 58 camp sites. The horse camp has 8 spots. It is 9 miles from Port Orford and 28 miles from Bandon. The camp area is in the middle of large trees so the wind doesn't really hit you. We were a long ways away from the bathroom but it was extremely clean. It is a first come first serve campground except for the cabins. Park in the spot you want them go pay the camp host. www.oregonstateparks.org

Loved this camp ground

Bullard Bay has 3 loops, it is family friendly and two miles north of Bandon. The campground has a lot of shore pines and they protect it from the strong ocean breezes. It has Camping, fishing, beach combing, great sunsets and a famous Lighthouse. Some of the sites have water and electrical hookups. They also Horse camping and many hiking trails and bike paths. The corals can be used by day use also. The beaches are about 3/4 a mile away from the campgrounds. The path from the campground to the beach was too hard for us to push my wheel chair or the stroller. The easiest beach access is parking at the day use area, opposed to walking from your site. The restrooms were the cleanest I have ever seen at a park and all have plumbing (no outhouses). We loved this park. http://oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkPage&parkId=50

Nice place to stay

If your staying here on the weekend make sure you reserve your spot early they are always booked on the weekends. It was right next to the river. The sound put me right too sleep. They have awesome showers and front load washers and dryers. There was nothing for the kids to play on but they have a dog walk area. There is also a boat ramp. The night was quiet and peaceful.

Great place for the sand dunes.

We did a last minute camping trip and most places were full. We mostly tent camp. There was very little grass and only a couple of tents. It was a parking lot with numbers for your site. It was loud and no privacy. Would be a great place to camp if you had sand toys and were there to party.

Love this place

This is a place that the locals go to swim in the summer. We love to swim here. The campground includes eight campsites and several picnic sites surrounded by an abundant forest of fir, maple and oak trees. Not recommended for large RVs or trailers. There is a swimming hole at the bottom of the 10 foot waterfall.

Great camping place

It is about 2 miles from Florence right on Hwy 101. The yurts are nice. Dunes access is easy. The playground looks like it would be fun for kids. There was a car show in Florence that weekend. Your in a sandy area with lots of trees. As it got dark the wind picked up but it wasn't to bad. If your ADA you need to get a ADA space otherwise the bathrooms can be quite a walk. The trash cans are at the entrance. Very big camp park.

Wide open area

There are no wind breaks at all and there is nothing between the other camp sites. Other than that it wasn't bad. They have a restaurant on site. There are RV sites, tent sites and cabins. The park is right on the beach so there is almost no walking to get to the water. I wouldn't stay there again just because of the wind.

Unimpressive Facilities

The weekend we spent at Sunset Bay was busy with limited availability. In our group was my mother-in-law who requires ADA facilities, and a potty training toddler. All of the designated ADA sites were full. Standard sites require an extensive, uneven, walk to the restroom, a problem for those needing ADA facilities, potty trainers, and middle of the night restroom users. The only play area is across the street (there is a path that crosses under the road) it provides only horseshoe toss pits, beach volleyball nets, and a basketball hoop. We stayed in A loop which is along the road and adjacent to the ranger station/entrance. There were limited barriers resulting in loud road noise, car lights at all hours, and a lot of wind. Tent sites, yurts, motor home sites, and dedicated hiker/biker sites are available, though tent sites are not level. Included in the cost of the camping fee is entrance to the botanical gardens with your vehicle permit, guided hikes to the tide pools, and educational events, such as animal lectures, in the amphitheater.

East lemolo campground

We were there with a large group of people so it was loud. Not sure how would be on a normal night. It was not a bad place to stay but not my favorite. People were catching some nice fish. They have cabins I did not go into one so I'm not sure how they were. It is a good place to have large groups though.

Ranger review at whistlers bend county park with Goal zero lighthouse 250 lantern

147 acres. 50 sites 14 are power. Large area for group camping. They have 2 yurts. Disc golf rated number 2 in nation. child play area and free parking for campers. You can apply for a veterans card and camp free. The fishing is great and they have a boat ramp. I would recommend this place, but if your in the group area it can be a little noisy. The goal zero lighthouse 250 really lit up the camp site. And it charged my phone. Would definitely recommend goal zero products.
