If you choose one beach to walk this is the one, beautiful, clean, views that are superb, monolith rocks jutting out into the ocean. Wonderful beach combing and sunsets that are incredible.

Our first and only camping trip to Harris Beach: While I do appreciate the closeness to the beach and the free showers, our three night trip was cut short due to the horrible noise starting a 1:30 am from the adjacent lumber mill. The sound goes on for several hours, very loud beeping, dropping loads of lumber and truck noise.... More

A nice park for some coastal camping. They had a good number of tent sites available, with some good distance and/or plants between tent sites- by no means the perfect, but sufficient for this type of camping situation. Many of the sites are protected by towering pine trees, which works well when the rain that so often occurs in this... More

We went their for one of their night programs to hear a singer, the programs are free and the staff at the front booth are so nice and helpful and no cost to get in if you are out by 10 pm. The campgrounds are really nice also as we walked around to see them while we were there.

Lovely beach, great views has clean rest rooms with flush toilets. Well maintained. Good parking. Too cold to swim which is typical for this region. Low tide is fun with sea anemones and star fish to be found against the big rocks.

Great place to hangout, relaxing, and absolutely beautiful. We didn't camp, but just took a drive there and enjoyed the nice walk up and down the coastline. Took a picnic lunch and enjoyed each others company with the girlfriends.

I've been going here since age 6. Beautiful. Close enough to town to go eat or buy a forgotten item. Very windy. Was charged $7!!! Extra because my daughter stayed a night w us. 😒 though she lives with us. The playground, beach, camp spots & restrooms are very well kept. We will keep returning.

This is a great campground for families. The beach is really nice, especially at low tide when you can see the starfish and sea anemones. The campground has great sites with a lot of privacy. If you are one of the lucky ones, you can get "ocean front property":)
