Just Ok, Nothing special. If your traveling the Oregon coast there are better options than here. It looks like there is a campground above the parking lot.

We were driving north on Highway 101 and saw this beautiful piece of Oregon coast. Breathtaking views were enjoyed by all. The wind was extremely brisk as we climbed among the rocks. The water was glistening a teal blue color and was just inviting us to stop and explore. After visiting for quite a while and taking many pictures, we... More

Harris Beach is a clean, picturesque and convienent park. Just North of Brookings, right off 101 and on the ocean. The beach is amazing with lots of rock formations and great trail access.

I visit this beach often and always take the trail less traveled and that is the first parking area and trail you come to as you turn into Harris Beach State Park. Travelers, if you pass that parking area and continue into the park you will find another beautiful beach with a wheel chair accessible ramp to the beach at... More

Spent an afternoon hiking the beaches and an overnight in a 22 ft motor home. Hiked north beach, south beach and "Rocky Beach". All were very scenic and the trails "easy", (a bit steep, but short). Campground was clean and quiet and restroom/showers some of the best we experienced on this 2-month trip. Clean, hot water, hooks, soap dish AND... More

If you drive 101 thru Brookings go to Harris Beach it will take your breath away. Large rock formations are on the shore line. Unusual pink rocks . Family friendly and pet friendly .

If you have an RV or a family & you're looking for a place to get together with clean showers & a beach nearby then this is the campsite for you. It was exactly as it says on the tin. We booked in here because it fitted in with our itinerary & timescales (roadtripping down the 101). However, we would... More

Love to take my dogs to run on this beach. Long stretch to "open it up" and some great trails around.

The beach is beautiful with artful driftwood structures, ocean rock formations, easy trail access from the very clean campground which filled by evening. The bathroom facilities were close to camp sites, the showers roomy with no apparent time limit, all very clean. Our site was open, spacious, flat with a typical picnic table and small fire pit. The fee was... More
