Make a pit stop at Harris Beach a priority. Easy acess just west off of Highway 101 north of Brookings. There are several viewing levels plus a forested trail with great parking throughout. The beach is easy to walk or roll down a gently sloping and paved path to the south and a trail to the north. There are fabulous... More

We have camped at Harris Beach State Park a couple of times over the last two years and we will definitely be going back! The campgrounds are beautiful and the campsites provide plenty of room. The showers are clean and spacious and are completely free! The campground also has a playground, which our kids love and a jr. rangers program,... More

I am lucky enough to live very near Harris Beach, so I get to enjoy it daily. This lovely beach and wildlife preserve is easily accessible and should be enjoyed by all!

Excellent place to spend the day, beach combing, picnicking or just relaxing in the surf and sand. Beautiful views from the road and parking area as well.

In spite of the unprecedented snow storm, we very much enjoyed the coast and the beautiful sun and ocean.

This year, for my 38th birthday, my husband and I booked a yurt at Harris Beach State Park in Brookings, Oregon. We arrived on a Tuesday afternoon and met with our park hosts. They were extremely friendly and we chit chatted a bit before they gave us our key and sent us on our way. Oregon has been having major... More

We were out to spot the migrating whales. The beach area is clean and easy to manage. We didn't see any whales but maybe we were a week early.

The Oregon coast is so stunning and the views from Harris Beach are some of the best. Beach access is easy as well as ample parking. Great for a lunch stop on the way up the caost. Camping near bu also.

My husband and I just moved from New York to Brookings, arriving two days ago. We had to go to beautiful Harris Beach and let the ocean roll over our feet. This spot is so pristine, majestic, and unspoiled. Incredibly maintained by the rangers. It is winter here and we have places like this to ourselves, but come summer, the... More

We were lucky and got an amazing visit to this beach. 57 degrees and simply lovely!!! We did some beach combing and even found a couple of pieces of driftwood to take home with us.
