Sites were large and had good vegetative separation. Good ocean views on the A loop but better to reserve ahead of time. Nice long beach. Park and facilities were clean and well kept. We will return to this one.

Really nice beach but well known so don't expect to have the place to yourself. Campsites available here but fill quickly. Nice sand and tide pools too, especially to the left if you are facing the ocean. Good whale watching from the bluff above when in season.

And this beach is a picture perfect proof of that. Lots of coves and places to explore, a rock that looks like and elephant resting on its... More

This is a nice pleasant place to spend some time on a good day. Plenty of sandy beach along an interesting coastline.

Lots of Sandy beach to walk on, some fun little trails and huge rocks to climb. Worth the drive to Brookings.
