The Oregon International Port of Coos Bay is a port of the Pacific coast of the United States, located in Coos Bay near the city of Coos Bay, Oregon. It is the largest deep-draft coastal harbor between San Francisco Bay and Puget Sound, and is Oregon's second busiest maritime commerce center after the Port of Portland. The port operates the 134-mile Coos Bay Rail Link which connects the port to Eugene, Oregon and the national rail network.

In the mid-1900s, the Port of Coos Bay held the title of "world's largest lumber shipping port". Lumber ships loaded with whole-log loads of the region's prized Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock and Port Orford Cedar timber were a common sight at the docks.

There is a proposal to build a liquified natural gas export terminal at the Port of Coos Bay. This proposal is known as the Jordan Cove Energy Project.
