  • 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 frie...  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.

  • This place is lovely at any time of year. The staff are friendly and helpful, and they have recently expanded and improved upon older areas of the park. They have hot showers and clean bathrooms. And of course, the view is always beautiful.
  • Two complaints: 1) Day use area closes before dawn. 2) My docile, calm, non-threatening, small dog walked around my campsite. A worker riding around in a gas powered (air polluting!!!) ATV warned me to put my dog on a leash at all times. Who's the bad guy here? Someone with a campsite with a well behaved dog not causing any problem trying to enjoy the campsite or a worker who the taxpayers and campsite patrons pay to drive around in a polluting vehicle snooping into everyone's campsite looking to harass them because he's too lazy to walk and doesn't want to focus on work that needs to be done? So... the State Parks have rules against any pets or service animals being off leash WITHIN the patron's campground they pay for or otherwise legitimately are entitled to use. However anyone can smoke anytime they want in their campground even if the smoke travels to adjacent campsites and annoys the hell out of non-smokers who can do nothing about it but move. Also people can make a lot of noise during the day. That's fine with the State Park. Sounds like someone else needs to be in charge and/or make rule changes: No well behaved pets or service animals off leash in your campsite? Then shouldn't be able to smoke or make noise there either! The good things are that it is a safe, clean and scenic Park. If not for under the wing of the state of Oregon then it would be blocked from the public and owned by a few private people from California
  • A beautiful ocean area. Also has a nice trail to great spot to overlook the ocean. Has a bathroom for public access near the beach and nice campground.
  • One of the best camp sites I've been to. I was impressed with how clean it was and how nice everyone was. The sunset was amazing. Will go back in the future.
  • 24 hour construction right on the edge of the campground. All night you can hear trucks, backing up beepers, heavy machinery, digging, and scraping. VERY loud and nonstop. While this is happening they should disclose this to people coming to camp. I wouldn't have stayed had I known the construction was 24 hours a day. Left after one night, brutal. Even NYC is quieter at night. 🙄
