A great place to set up for the evening and watch the sun set. Stay long enough, light a fire, bring some dinner, and you can even catch the stars emerge over the pacific!  

Drive north from Brookings Oregon on highway 101. You will see Harris Beach State Park on your left about 500 yards out of town. There is a campground and a day use area. We camped there for 2 nights, and it was a great spot to base our adventure of the southern coast. 

From either the day use area or the campground, make your way down to the beach, find yourself a nice private area (there is lots of space), and say goodbye to the day in the best way possible!

Great campground, clean facilities with great beach access

This campground is great! The facilities are amazing, making it an excellent stop for those traveling long distances and looking to freshen up. This campsite is not very secluded, you will still hear cars passing but the proximity to town makes this a great stop over to restock on supplies. Be sure to hike from the campsite down to the beach for sunset or just to explore the coastline from the comfort of your campground. I will definitely be back!

Old Favorite

I grew up camping here as a kid and loved spending hours riding my bike down all of the paths and adventuring around, there was also, of course playing on the beach and tide pooling. I recently visited the park again and it still has the same offerings, overall well enjoyed, the tide pools are not teaming with as much life as they used to be.
