Free, clean, hot showers! A short walk to the beach. Affordable. Beautiful. Clean campground. Best campground I've ever stayed at. We camp here every summer!

We had a wonderful afternoon here climbing around the beach. We saw starfish and anemone and made a sand castle from the driftwood on the beach.

This has to be one of the best campgrounds around. Sites are large and private and some have beautiful ocean views. About 20 sites also have cable TV hookup, although you don't get the best channels. I have a Winneguard antenna top of my trailer and pulled in about 8 channels clearly without the hookup. The campground sits up on... More

We came here with our 1 year old and she had a BLAST! There's a lot of tide pools with a lot of little creatures, starfish, anemones, slugs.. It's amazing! Sunset is breathtaking and the weather was nice!

We tented here one night at the beginning of September. We stayed in Site D-11. It was a private, treed site. It was a very short, pretty walk to the bluff to get a beautiful ocean view. It was then a short walk down a steep hill to get onto the beach. The beach was very picturesque with lots of... More

Rented a yurt - bunkbed with twin upper, full-sized mattress lower. Fold down twin mattress couch. Heated and comfortable. Many RVs. Beautiful location -BUT -- 1. Someone stole our firewood. 2. Next door is a sawmill and operations run 24 hours a day. Constant sawmill operations and truck noise - including the beep-beep-beep backing alert. Bring earplugs.

We travelled in late September so we were basically "off" season. This stretch of beach was a wonderful walk without too many "sneak" waves!! Will return again!

Stayed at the park Sept 23rd and 24th. The park is located right on the ocean and should have been a wonderful place to stay. The town of Brookings is very close and has most of the conveniences you might want. The park however has exceptionally small spaces for Rv's. I have a 26' travel trailer and the space would... More

It is a great family beach, no matter how busy it is it is not crowded. Dogs are welcome on the beach and plenty of room to build your sand castles.

Living on the east coast and Cape Cod for our entire life we expected the beaches to be similar to those of Cape Cod. To our surprise Harris Beach is not like the Cape at all. The beaches provided opportunity to climb rock formations, walk through cave-like structures and witness the amazing beauty that can only be seen on the... More
