How can you lose - a clean, spacious campground with many sites to accommodate all types of cars, tents, RVs, trailers. On the beach with easy access to walking on the sand and, if you wish, some types of rock climbing. The Brookings downtown area is not far away with a Fred Meyers store that has everything and anything you... More

We had a really pleasant stay at Harris Beach campground, with easy access to the beach, clean bathrooms/showers and friendly camp hosts. We made reservations and "checked in" online and our spot was ready and waiting for us when we arrived about 8pm (after work). Just a few spots have a view of the ocean, but the campground itself is... More

Had a great two nights here, quiet, even near the road. Near beach, easy access. Great photo opportunities. Hiking trails, camping and close to Brookings.

This is a must see when you visit. My dogs loved it and so did I. Took a lot of great pics and beautiful waves. Nice rocks and driftwood. Went first thing in the morning and nobody else was there except a lone kayaker.

Harris Beach has it all: camping with nothing more than a backpack (they have yurts) to huge trailers. Some trailer spaces have ocean views. The trail system is great, some of it, including a short walk to a fabulous ocean view, is handicap accessible. There are two distinct beaches: one is a rocky shore with tide pools and weird through-the-hole-in-the-rock... More

There was a wildlife volunteer on the walkway down to the beach who had a telescope trained on Goat Island. She told us about the history of the island and all the different species of wildlife at Harris Beach. She even pointed out a bunch of Harbor seals basking in the sun that couldn't be seen with the naked eye.... More

Nice parking area, easy access to beach, beautiful scenery, bathrooms available and plenty of water taps to wash the sand off your feet before climbing back into your vehicle.

I guess when the all night lumber mill is directly across the street from the campground you should expect lots of noise all night. I just wish I knew before hand as I would not have stayed.

We stayed here on our way home from Gold Beach. Even though it was just a few minutes south, we decided to stay because it was so great. Campsites were plentiful mid May 2015 and we easily found a spot to our liking. Great HEATED bathrooms with hot showers included in the $30/night fee for full hookups. Wonderful view of... More

I love the Brookings area, even though I moved here--doesn't mean I have seen everything...I drive past Harris Beach...all the time...I started to stop and check it out..The access to the beach is wonderful as well as the parking...I stopped to do some tai chi and loved the friendly atmosphere....
