Bagnell Ferry is an unincorporated community in Curry County, Oregon, United States. It lies along the north bank of the Rogue River about 5 miles (8 km) upstream of Gold Beach.

The community is named after William Bagnell, who operated a river ferry at this location. A post office named Bagnell opened here in 1894 but closed less than a year later. John R. Miller was its first and only postmaster.
