Great beach access point on the Southern Oregon Coast. Probably the best place to observe sunset near Brookings. Lot of people around but more than enough place for all activities. Fair amount of parking, but fills up on a nice summer day quickly. Clean restrooms! No fee site.

Great beach. Be sure to explore both north and south ends for fun surprises! The beach extends past rocks to tide pools and secluded little coves. Perfect spot for sunsets!

My family goes here everytime we're in town. Camping here is wonderful. Showers, playground, hiking and moments from the beach, it's perfect. Day trips are great too! The foot shower is great for cleaning up kids. Don't forget to checkout the sunset.

Access from the parking lot is ramped. The beach is large and sandy. Plenty of photographic opportunities.

This is our favorite beach around Brookings. Very family oriented. Easy to get down onto and lots of sand to play in. Lots of space, never too crowded. Love exploring it :) If you are into hiking check out the trail to the top of the mountain behind the bathrooms, beautiful view!

This beach is a short drive north of Brookings. It has decent restroom and shower for washing off sand. There is a downramp accessable for wheelchairs. Doesn't seem to be too crowded. The grandkiddies had a ball bullding sandcastles.

Beach access just a quarter mile down the road with picturesque sandy beach. Lots of trails for exploring vistas from the bluff above too. Oregon has really well maintained state park camp grounds. Would love to come camp here again.

The views from Harris Beach are amazing. There was easy access to a beach. The campsites were clean and well cared for, and the showers were amazing! What we did not like was how close everyone was. All the sites were very close together and with this came the noise...not only from highway 101 but from all the campsites. Just... More
