I really do love most old lighthouses. When I was here in October the lighthouse was closed, but the spraying surf and the huge waves crashing at it's base made up for it being closed.

Cute two toned lighthouse neat Bullards Beach. You can drive right up to the lighthouse and walk around one half of it. The beach and jetty just beyond are beautiful, making this a great stop for photos. Shore birds are fun to watch here.

Pretty and short drive out to this lighthouse. Not too crowded. I only saw 2 other people in the area. If you love taking photos- sunset is your jam.

Coquille River Lighthouse is a picturesque landmark that's been generously restored, and during the summer season, free tours are available. The beach is rugged, and picnic tables are available.

This was a nice lighthouse to visit on the jetty that extended out for a good ways. The walk out onto the jetty is easy with a flat walkway with rocks on each side of the water. Be warned that if you walk out toward...More

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

You can not park close to the Lighthouse, single lane road. There is a wider lot further back, but the parking can be full. The campground is nearby, maybe you can leave the trailer there.
