We have RVed here with our 31-ft. 5th wheel in the past. The conifer-covered camp sites give the park a majestic feeling. Harris is a lovely beach, great for strolls. It is very popular in the summer so make reservation as early as possible. Many sites are quite private, and some are close in (great for group camping). Restroom facilities... More

Harris Beach has great views of scenic rock stacks, long stretches of sandy beach, tidepools to be explored, picnic tables, and a nice campground. I make a point to visit whenever i get the chance at any time of the year, the huge waves and sheets of rain during winter storms are just as impressive and enjoyable as the colorful... More

What a great beach! The trail down to the beach was easy, and the bathrooms are close. Its a great place to take a family or even the elderly.

Beautiful park and beach. Excellent access for walkers or wheelchairs. Restrooms were clean and plenty of parking. The beach here is spectacular. Large rock formations and lots of room to walk and explore.

Great beach access. Welcoming State Park. Walking distance to the town of Brookings. Clean bathrooms. Perfect place for beachcombing, tide pool gazing, bird watching, or just plain gazing.

The park was closed to campers, but I still enjoyed the views, cleanliness, and accomodations. Great place to visit.

I loved the beach here. The view is so beautiful. Lots of neat places to climb or just walk on the beach. Watching the sunset from here is magnificent. Can't beat it.

From a beautiful beach to rugged rocks to pounding waves, this beach has it all. And, if you eat lunch at one of the tables, you'll get up close and person with the gulls and squirrels.

Great camping experience at the ocean side state park near the California border. Tent rates only $14 per night, immaculate bathrooms and volunteers who make sure to clean up each campsite after the campers vacate. Yurts were only $43 per night but I am told they are hard to get and need reservations 6 months or more in advance. Easy... More

Like going to this beach. Layed back and not busy like the port. Great for hiking with a lot of trails in the area as well as the beach itself.
