Camp at at Harris Beach SP

Rate this Adventure Oregon Harris Beach State Park

Added by John Entwistle

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!
