This place was located across from Harris Beach, which was nice, but the campground itself was not that great. It was crowded and noisy. I have never seen so many people with dogs. We are dog lovers, but there were so many barking dogs it was ridiculous. Even at the evening ranger program, we counted 11 dogs attending the program... More

This is a great beach and easily accessible, however we live here and it is probaably the most visited beach near Brookings so we don't go there very often. We prefer to hike down to beaches that aren't as visitor friendly.

Stayed two nights at Harris Beach State Park. If you are tent camping I highly recommend D5-1 or 2 or 3. Quite off the beaten path. What I didn't realize when we booked was just how close the campground is to US 101. The traffic noise is loud and constant but quiet late in the night. The beach is very... More

Fantastic place to take pictures of a sunset - picnic on the beach and watch the surfers. Very clean and family friendly. One of our favorites.

A beautiful beach with lots of beach access. There isn't that much parking but it wasn't too busy when we were there. Will have to go back next time we are in Brookings.

One of the best beaches along the coast – second in our opinion only to MacKerricher Beach in Mendocino County.

This is the perfect place for families, for play and for watching sunsets. Dogs seem to love it too. Always take a jacket, as a cool wind can arise, especially in the evening. There is NO admission fee, plenty of parking and it is just a few hundred yards of walking to reach the water. Lots of rocks to climb... More

My partner booked the site a year in advance. Car camping meant no hassle. We walked on the beach. We ate organic ice cream from a person who delivered it along with firewood. Impossible for me to say enough good things.
