  • Beautiful State Park. The beaches here have breathtaking views. Low tide pools are fun to explore. Close to Jedediah Smith Redwoods. Noise from the mill nearby takes some adjusting too.  more »
  • It is a nice quiet place. Nothing spectacular about it. Perfect place to have a quiet moment alone. I looked for some glass pebbles but didn't find any.  more »
  • This obscure little park has a wonderful dog park for dogs to chase balls and greet other dogs, along with chairs for humans. Parking was easy and there are trails down to the beach and a porta potty.  more »

  • Nice walk and a cool rock formation. The wind can be howling at times but that’s the Oregon coast so get used to it. Plus it’s a no fee area.
  • I take our labradoodle Daisy here, there's a very nice dog park for her to run in and make friends as Oregon has strict leash laws which most tourists either don't know or ignore.
  • Great little beach in Brookings, not easy to find but if u do. GO!!!!!
  • I can't think of a time I've ever given a natural area less than five stars, but the management of this one deserves it. Is there a high crime problem in Brookings or something? We were there to watch the sunset, and meandered back. Apparently it closes exactly at sunset, because we were getting yelled at by a state park employe to leave maybe 10 minutes after sunset. Really? Still, it is a fairly scenic part of the coast. Just maybe see the sunset at a place without a gate.
  • Great Off-Leash Dog Park!
