Bandon is a family-oriented town of about 2,500 located on the Southern Oregon Coast, approximately 100 miles north of the California border. Fishing, hunting, crabbing, horseback riding, surfing and beachcombing are among the many activities that draw people from around the world to this particular dot on the map.
      In my opinion, the real draw is access to water, and lots of it! On any given day, with minimal effort, we can be watching the sun rise on the Chetco River, Pistol River, Hunter Creek, Rogue River, Elk River, Sixes River, Floras Creek, the north, south, middle or east fork of the Coquille River, north, south or main fork of the Umpqua River, Ten Mile Creek, the Oregon or California Smith Rivers, Millicoma or Coos River to start your fishing trip. Other options include the fascinating deep-water Port of Coos Bay or impressive and stunning Winchester Bay. The Coquille River estuary and bay is home to great fishing adjacent to the USFW Wildlife Refuge at the Bandon Marsh.

      There is world class golf at Bandon Dunes, rated top ten in the nation, just five miles north of town. Restaurants and shopping are plentiful with stunning ocean views, magnificent beaches and a working port all just a stroll away from your hotel room or vacation rental. Bring the family, take the kids to the wild animal petting zoo, play a round of golf at one of our many nearby courses.

      Getting to Bandon is easy. Take a leisurely drive through the redwoods or blast down the I-5 corridor and cut over on Highway 126, 38, 42 or 199 …you’ll be here before you know it. In a hurry to go fishing? There are commercial flights to nearby North Bend/Coos Bay, private planes land at the Bandon airport and we have the availability of rental cars and transportation services.
