I can't believe I don't see any comments about the hellacious noise from the lumber mill. I just We could hear logs being dumped, beeping noise from trucks backing up literally all night long. We slept in a tent in it was so bad. I've never been subjected to such a thing. Maybe, if you have a motorhome it would... More

Harris Beach is the easiest-to-find example of the spectacular ocean beauty near Brookings. I've camped there and enjoyed the campground, which is open even during some portions of the winter. There are three main beaches, each with great views of the ocean, sea stacks, and tide pools. The southernmost is accessible via a long black-topped path from the first parking... More

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.
