Sandy

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

This is a wonderful state park close to Brookings. Beautiful sandy beach with lots of photo ops! Great for family picnics and a fun place for kids to play.

If you're looking for peace and quiet, this park isn't for you. It sits right off the highway, next to an operating sawmill that seems to run all night with heavy equipment. Might be alright in a big rig, but I have trouble imagining what it might be like in a tent. We were in a van, so the noise... More

This beach is fantastic for couples, fami ies,every one. Come to wallk, play,exercise or watch wildlife. Bring a lunch and picnic at one of the tables overlooking the beach. Oh,and bring binoculars, on a sunny day you might see sea lions on nearby bird island or whales inthe nearby deep water

Very nice quiet campground with a variety of spaces including ocean views. Hiker biker spots, pull throughs, back ins, yurts. Nice bathrooms and private shower rooms. A hike to the beach but stunning views. Some reserved some unreserved spots

My grandson and I love camping at Harris Beach. The sites are private with the delegation of plantings. The walk to Harris Beach is easy and fun to do. We have flown kites there and climbed the large rocks. I hear this is a great place to whale watch. Bathrooms and showers are clean at the park and there are... More

Even the drive descending down to the beach is amazing, with the road plunging between two cliffs you could almost reach out and touch (but keep your hands on the wheel! :-). The beach itself is expansive, clean and dotted with close-in small sea stacks perfect for some low-tide observations of the lush attached sea life!

My wife and I visited for the first time and will definitely visit this location again. i would suggest that people visit this part of the Oregon Coast. We enjoyed the proximity to the Redwood forest and the California border. The next time we will be venturing further up into Gold Beach and maybe Port Orford.

The campground is beautiful and the access to the beach is great whether you are camping or there for day use. Tidepools and spotting whales is popular.
