Almost to hard to book

Close to town, great views, a quick drive to the beach or a steep lengthy walk. Almost too popular… hard to book.

Close to Town and Crowded

The campground is just off the highway about one mile north of Brookings.  The hike and bike area was set apart from the regular hookups for RVs and other vehicles.  Very clean restrooms and showers. Park rangers and camp hosts visited the hike and bike area often because of all the homeless coming from the nearby city.

The ice cream truck cones by, and you can get a pizza......still, it's nice

The ice cream truck threw me until I figured out they also sold ice. This is a really big (150 sites plus yurts snd hiker/biker spots) campground just off 101. Reservations are needed during the summer. Be sure to pay attention to site length. Some tent sites are ginormous, others not. Nice bathrooms with showers. Some sites on the outside edge have ocean views. There are cable tv (really full hookups) and wi-fi. Beach is easily accessible. 2 miles ftom Brookings.

mixed Emotions

so it a beautiful campground! very clean well maintained, great ppl, close to the ocean. But the sites are small well most of them, ours wasn’t to bad. highly trafficked VERY LOUD. the park is quit at 10 but there is a logging meal close and u hear it all night long its stupid.. we will not be staying here again.

We recommend day use only

My husband and I came to spend one night in a tent site. The wonderful man working at the registration booth informed us there was one space left for the night. I wish we could remember his name! He was very informative about nearby campgrounds, restaurants, beaches, etc. We chose the site, (which was an R.V. site) and set up camp. The site was VERY exposed near the front entrance. Lots of noisy people, dogs and traffic, unfortunately we were up by dawn. We also went for an evening stroll to the beach, but were informed it's not allowed after dark. The wait for the showers was ridiculously long, but we realize it was a full campground. There is a HUGE raccoon/skunk infestation, so lock your things up and keep your dogs leashed. One other thing, we couldn't touch the ocean water because a raw sewage leak was reported… All of those inconveniences aside, the park is very clean, the beach and tidepools are beautiful, I recommend staying the day here and finding another place to camp.

beautiful views/busy in the summer time

Great spot just off 101 with beautiful views. The campground is well maintained and clean. Lots of trails around to explore that take you down to the beach. Trailer and tent spots available. The place is a little crowded during the summer time but it is still a great spot right by the ocean. bathrooms and water hookups were available. This park is conveniently located north of Brookings. The beach has a paved ramp down to the beach

Right on the beach

They had showers, beautiful beach access, and the cutest little town!

Beautiful, restful and fun for the family

We decided to last minute to make a reservation at Harris beach because we took the coast home from Or to Wa because of all the fires and smoke. Luckily, there was a spot available and we were so happy to get anything. When we got there the fog pulled off the coast to reveal a beautiful rocky coastline. The sun was setting when got there and it was magical.

There was even a playground for the kids and we got a great site. The showers were clean facilities , hot showers and even a documentary on whales for the kids in the evening. I highly recommend this state park and will go back again and stay longer!

Southern Oregon Coast Favorite

This is one of the prettiest State Park campgrounds along Oregons Southern Coast! Just off Hwy 101 and less than a mile north of Brookings, OR.

This campground has many Full hookup sites with plenty of tent sites too. All RV sites are paved with gravel around the picnic table and fire ring. Each loop has its own restrooms and showers which were well kept and very clean. A large playground is located in A loop and is a short walk really from any loop. There is an amphitheater with bench seating that ranger talks are hosted pretty much nightly. We attended one and had a great time watching a moving and learning about the local whales that frequent the coastline there. They offer Junior Ranger activities in a yurt directly across from the amphitheater. Unlike most of the Oregon State Parks we have visited it is only open for an hour 10-11 everyday, but still worth checking out with the kiddos. They do have firewood available to purchase in the campground as well for $5/bundle.

Camping here you are very close to the OR- CA border which makes trips to the Redwood National Park and Crescent City extremely easy. Trails through the Redwoods in Jedediah State Park and Ocean were great for the kiddos when we were not spending time on the beach at the campground.

We really enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be making a return trip!
