Intro

Featuring panoramic ocean views, hot showers, and family-friendly amenities, Harris Beach State Park is a piece of paradise in Brookings, Oregon. From simple hiker/biker sites to heated yurts, the park offers a variety of camping options. Just a short walk from the campground, the beach is accessible from multiple trails.

Less than two miles from the shops and restaurants in downtown Brookings, Harris Beach State Park is close to several attractions including Azalea Park and Chetco Brewing Company. After a day of exploring the rugged beaches, visitors can grab a bite at Fat Irish Kitchen and Pub. Made with Guinness and a heavy dose of whiskey, their Fat Mary is amazing!

What Makes It Great

Rising above the sea, the well-maintained campground at Harris Beach State Park offers 23 electrical sites with water, 33 electrical sites with water and cable, 34 full RV sites, 59 tent sites, and 6 modestly furnished yurts equipped with electricity and heating. Each site includes a fire pit and picnic area. Firewood is sold on site.

A popular family destination, the campground at Harris Beach State Park features a playground complete with swings, slides, and a jungle gym. In the summer, an ice cream truck makes its way around the park offering treats to campers. The park’s Junior Ranger Program offers kids the opportunity to learn about plants, animals, and park protection as well as the chance to earn rewards by completing program activities.

Harris Beach State Park is one of the most comfortable campgrounds along the Oregon Coast. The heated bathrooms and hot showers (no quarters required) are especially nice given the area’s normally chilly climate. Everything is clean and well-maintained. The camp hosts are extremely friendly and helpful.

On-site activities include hiking, evening campfire programs (summer months only), and beach combing. At low tide, visitors are treated to pools of sea life including starfish, anemones, and hermit crabs.

Who is Going to Love It
