Harris Beach State Park campground
Camping at Harris Beach State Park in Brookings provides access to one of the most scenic sections of the Oregon Coast, including Harris Beach and the Samuel Boardman Scenic Corridor.
Set in coastal forest with easy access to the beach, this large campground has four loops of campsites for RVs and tents. While the campsites vary in size, most have good privacy with trees and shrubs separating them. Note that there is some highway noise due to being located next to Highway 101, but this also provides great access to exploring the southern Oregon coast, including the Redwoods National Park in northern California.

Hiking trails near the campground
Beach access is a short walk from the campground, but for more hiking, drive north on Highway 101 and stop at the many pullouts in the Samuel Boardman State Scenic Corridor for outstanding views and hiking trails.
