  • Beautiful location with family friendly beaches and tide pools to explore make for an amazing weekend trip or day trip.  more »
  • Small beach area but a pretty view for picture taking . Big haystack rock. Nothing in the park is exceptional. Not a good beach walk area.  more »
  • The campsites at Harris Beach are only a short walk to the beach. The campsites were clean and well maintained. I felt like the campsites were private, even though they were not very large. The campgr...  more »

  • This park is easy to find just off Hwy 101 on the Oregon coast. The day use area at the beach has parking with room for RV’s. The gate house is staffed, the park is clean and well managed. Paved wheelchair access to sandy ocean beach. Squirrels, seagulls, pelicans, driftwood, sand, and surf. Campground roads and parking pads are paved and in good condition. Shrubs between sites offer some privacy. Private, hot, clean, free showers; flush toilets. Active camp hosts provide daily programs for children. Modern adventure playground in campground area. Trails down to beach and along ridge. Tide charts posted. Tall trees, grass, ocean breezes, full hook-up sites, power & water sites, and tent sites. RV dump station. Great park.
  • Just gorgeous! Go there and you will not be disappointed. When you arrive there's parking just as you enter the park on your left. This allows you to take a little bit of a walk down to a more secluded beach (as compared to the other). If you, on the other hand, continue down to the right you'll end up at a more populated area that has bathrooms (something to consider depending on your guests.). The entire park is beautiful and the beaches are amazing.
  • Beautiful beach, good capground. Right now several camp looks are under renovation. Spots are tight - brush up your trailer backing skills if you have a trailer! Lots of visual privacy even tough closely packed.
  • Very close to beach, nice restrooms and showers very hot. Nice sites some very private. Great easy experience.
  • This was one of the most beautiful Parks I've ever visited. The ocean made beautiful sounds. The views were stunning lots of rocks in the ocean crashing waves lots of sea life around the rocks. Not many people, so it made for an enjoyable time to have a picnic. The picnic tables were set up nicely to have a view of the ocean.
