Brookings is a nice place to visit with great beach front parks. The port has small boats and people fish off the jetty. Nearby Rogue River offers boating and fishing. Better... read more

Moved here from Los Angeles area 8 years ago and haven't looked back. Best people in the world live here (I may be a bit prejudice) but it's true. Great community for anyone who wants to volunteer and help the community. It does get rain but mostly in the winter and spring. Occasional dusting of snow. Be prepared for weather... More

We organized our whole vacation around spending time in Brookings based on the hype around it - southernmost Oregon town at the ocean, a haven for lily bulb and retirees (that should have tipped us :). Sounded warm, cute as a button and vacation perfect. We stayed at Rainbow Rock, a condo complex where owners VRBO their place and we... More

Brookings is a nice place to visit with great beach front parks. The port has small boats and people fish off the jetty. Nearby Rogue River offers boating and fishing. Better weather than most of Oregon coast better beach access than Northern California beaches. RV park right at the dock if Harris park is full.

Maybe 5 miles north of Brookins, without much warning, you'll see the cape ferello sign. You'll turn to discover a steep narrow road with a sign warning "no turn around for trailers". Once you reach the top you'll see paved parking -with handicapped parking - and a port a potty. Looking towards the beach you'll have a breathtaking view -... More

We bought some property in Smith River just across the Oregon/California border and were up from SoCal to check out the area. Brookings seems like a nice clean town with some good restaurants and some beautiful scenic areas. The people seem friendly.

We had a good time in Brookings. We stayed at the Best Western, which has ocean facing rooms and is quite nice. We had great weather - warm, sunny - so people were enjoying beach camp fires at night. We also had spectacular weather during the day - clear, sunny. The state parks in the area are quite nice and... More

Stick to the beach, try the several choices of beaches in the area. Be Very selective in dining choices; avoid Fred Meyer at all costs. The Brookings Harbor beach is very accessible and a good place for an easy beach walk.
