    West Coast Game Park and Petting Zoo

    My Favorite

    This place is awesome! It is located 7 miles south of Bandon on HWY 101. It has been in existence for 35 years and is home to about 450 animals and birds, representing 75 different species.

    The reason why this place is so great is the interaction with the animals. There are llamas, goats, deer and bighorn sheep mingling with the park visitors, which you can feed and pet to your hearts content. They have a farm babies thing that they do where they bring out baby raccoons, possums, skunks, ferrets, that anyone can hold and pet.

    In addition to the baby "farm babies" they also bring out more exciting yung'uns like bear cubs, lion cubs, tiger cubs, and linxes. You cannot pick these animals up, but you can pet them and the great thing about this zoo is they make sure that everyone gets a turn.

    It's also a great place for photographing these beautiful animals...check out my travelogues for more photos.

    Bandon - The Coquille Point

    by 10eke Updated Oct 4, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bandon is the most beautiful beach I ever saw ! The haystacks are gorgeous. There is beach access on both sides of Coquille Point via new stairways.
    The area provide the best look at tide pools and underwater sea life. Bird life is everywhere, but the best concentration is the rocks off Coquille Point.

    This lighthouse was built in 1896 and was one of the last lighthouses built on the Oregon Coast. Known as the Bandon Lighthouse it was almost run over by a ship in 1904. It has a relatively short tower at 40 feet.

    Three places

    Bandon Lighthouse

    Three parts of Bandon you need to see. First, take the obligatory folksy shops and buy a trinket for Aunt Mary; also check out the boats, then make your way up to the park up on the hill. You'll love the view of the rocks. I was there at low tide and walked the beach. The third place is the Bandon lighthouse area just north of town. Good photo ops there in the dunes.

    The lighthouse is a very popular place to visit anytime of the year. In the summer volunteers man the lighthouse giving out information and taking you to the top of the lantern tower.
