Local Area Attractions
Wow! The southern Oregon coast is Oregon's best kept secret! Lots to see and do - you just have to get in the car and go north or south. Ask in the office....we can keep you busy for days (or you can just hang out at the pool).
West Coast Game Park
Experience the West Coast Game Park- the original walk-thru Safari, where visitors meet, pet, film, and walk among hundreds of free roaming wildlife. Plan to spend an afternoon among the animals. The Game Park is located 10 minutes north of the KOA on Highway 101.
3 miles from the campground - this fresh water lake is the wind surfing capital of Southern Oregon. Equipment and lessons are available at the lake.

Old Town Bandon, Bandon Coquille Lighthouse, Cranberry Museum, Vitra's European blown glass studio, Bandon Beach Horse Riding Stables, stroll thru Old Town waterfront stores. Lots of beach access along Beach Loop Drive....16 miles north of the KOA.
