a Great beach, that is close to town of Brookings. All the local recommend this as their best and most beautiful beach. Easy access by car. I really enjoy the visit and consider one of the most beautiful beach I seen for a long time.

Harris Beach State Park is distinguished by its tidal pools, multitudes of colorful seastars, and by its seastacks. The beach is easily accessed by a stroll from the parking lot. My pictures include a photo of one of the seastars. Perhaps a greater attraction, is the Boardman State Scenic Corridor and its various turn-outs and beaches, located just to the... More

This is a great beach. Nice soft sand and amazing spots to throw out a towel. The walk down the path to the beach could be long for some.

This busy campground fills up quickly but we got a camping spot without a reservation. We wanted a Yurt (a round tent cabin) but the few yurts go fast and should be pre-booked. Our tent site was clean and well shaded. It looks like they clean up every turnover. The area had been raked. Water, trash and wash water areas... More
