Gotta love those Pacific Coast sunsets! And this is a great place to watch the end of the day. Love those Oregon coastline rock formations ... which provide wonderful photographs.

We stopped here briefly, but weren't feeling it. Too busy , I think probably because like us, its the first beach you see so you stop. Don't unpack, check it out for a minute then head up north about 5-10 more minutes and check out lone beach..

One of my favorite campgrounds on the Oregon Coast. Try to stay in the D5 loop, it's a group area (you can book it for just one or two) that has tons of space. Redwoods and ocean breeze.

A really busy place and some sites were way to close together and no privacy. You need to book on line and choose your site carefully. Ours was great and it provided a good launching pad to explore up and down the coast.

Beautiful & fun to explore. There are bathrooms with real plumbing so that's a plus. Unfortunately it is a hot spot & there are always lots of people.

We stayed at Harris State Beach campground for 6 nights and had a great time. Right next to the beach but still in the trees. Well maintained campground with spotless bathrooms and pretty clean showers. Most sites are on the small side but with the hedges between the sites privacy is good. There was even an ice and ice cream... More

I would absolutely recommend visiting Harris Beach if you're making a run of the Oregon coast. I love going to Brookings simply for this beach. It has stunning views and you can almost always find a section of the beach all to yourself. There is a main parking lot down the hill that has clean bathrooms and foot showers as... More

This campground is wonderful. The spaces are surrounded by hedges so are very private. It is beautiful and has beautiful views. It's right on the beach and has cable hook ups which is uncommon in state parks. Oh, is really cheap to

loved the beach, even though all the hotels are booked, there aren't very many people down on the beach. Enjoyed it all most to ourselves. Probably should keep it a secret, It is a bit of a trek (esp back up) but it was so beautiful.
