It’s ok, but Oregon does it better

This has been our least favorite Oregon state park. Oregon has done such an awesome job with their state park campgrounds that it makes us admit this one is not the best in comparison. It feels more like a city park, with the highway rushing along side the entire place, both the campground and the day use park. The walking/bike path through the grounds is a nice feature. The grounds are well kept and the restrooms are ok, but the way the sites are arranged makes you feel like you’re surrounded by other people on all sides. The campground was full the first week of March. (The A-loop was closed for winter but that A-loop did look like a better spot.) And maybe it was the particular people who were here that effected this review as well. It’s definitely a mixed bag of patrons. A few very nice rigs with retiree owners, but then there were trailers that did not even look road legal, as if they were sitting there rusting long term. Right next door to us was a very rough group of too many adults piling out of a van like a clown car with their mean barking dogs, who all appear to be in a situation possibly close to homelessness. First time we felt the need to lock our doors while we slept. This park definitely worked for an overnight stop, but we will not be returning here, especially when Oregon has so much more to offer.

Got my 1st reservations...Yay!

Can’t wait to visit in June

A perfect getaway

This was one of our favorite campgrounds! Sites in loop A are ocean facing within earshot of the crashing waves. Those are also the sunniest sites if you need to dry things out and/or are relying on solar. Nice paved spots, very clean, flush toilets, and HOT SHOWERS. You really can’t go wrong. There’s lots to explore along the beach across the street from the campground and then Samuel H Boardman state park just down the road has great hikes too (natural bridges was our favorite).

Nice location

We were looking for something more dispersed but this was nice. C loop was first come, pay in the envelope, easy enough. C4 was a nice quiet spot, full hookup, near warm private showers and bathrooms. There were more open spots without trees to give more privacy so if you want more cover head to the back loops. Close to town with lots of restaurant options. 1 minute drive down to the beach to run the doggies and check out beach goodies. We also drove up to national redwood forest trail for a beautiful 1 mile hike. Very nice and efficient spot!

Review of Campground Harris State Park

Excellent campground. The showers are free,clean and have heaters. The spots are nice with the bushes and trees making them semi private. A quick walk takes you to the beach. You can hear the waves crashing from the campsite. Very dark at night. Excellent for stargazing, not so much for setting up after dark. The people were very friendly.

Hiking

A great place to take a walk or go hiking

An unexpected wintertime gem

We thoroughly love the Brookings area and especially this state park. The views have been beyond our hopes. The facilities are very nice and well maintained -even with COVID reductions.

Had to pay extra $8/night out of state fees, but still worth it.

Because registration bldg was not manned we picked out a site that did not indicate reserved, and paid for 2 nights with envelope but were told we’d have move after 1st night because it was reserved. It would have been better to indicate on site that reservations were pending on so we would have known up front, or found a site open for our two nights.

We will be back again.

Convenient location

Very nice park, clean restrooms and showers (although the shower drain backed up). Walking trails to the beach from the campground we’re easy to navigate. We were lucky to grab a walk in site, but we’re close to the highway. Some of the reservable sites have great views of the ocean.

Scenic, Quiet, Tranquil and Convenient to the River

Spent almost a week here in the fall. The campground was quiet and relatively empty making it tranquil and scenic and perfect with its proximity to the boat ramp onto the Rogue. Great base for a Rogue Wild and Scenic trip or even just as a trip into itself.

Road noise is present so it’s not a wilderness experience but that didn’t affect our visit at all.

Trails to Beach

Just outside of Brookings,Oregon on Rt. 101, this well kept campground was a welcome two day layover during the rainy weather that’s typical of the PNW during mid-November. My $24,no services site was C6 in the FF (first come, first served) loop. Located next to a trail to the beach, well screened with bushes and trees and close to the showers, it was the best of all.
