This beautiful park offers beach access and numerous outdoor recreation opportunities. The most popular include camping, yurt stays, beachcombing, viewing scenery, hiking, picnicking, fishing, bird-watching, swimming, interpretive tours, and excellent marine mammal viewing.
The park’s beauty changes with the seasons. Many people are drawn to watch the powerful and dramatic winter storms; others seek the green and fragrant spring. Summer brings warm days and sunlit beaches while the fall brings clear cool days and often the best sunsets of the year. Wildlife viewing opportunities are abundant, with gray whales on their winter and spring migrations, Harbor seals, California sea lions, sea birds and the rich marine gardens make the park a fascinating stop.
Vital stats: The campground offers 34 full hookup, 52 electrical, and 66 tent sites (maximum site 50 feet, cable TV hookups in selected campsites). Showers are available at the campground. The park also offers a hiker/biker camping area and 6 yurts. Yurts are domed tents with structural support, a plywood floor, lockable wooden door, lights, heating, and beds with mattresses. The park is open year-round.
: The Oregon coast receives abundant rainfall, mostly between October and April. July and August bring the best chance for clear days. Summer temperatures are normally moderate and almost never hot. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long.
Location: Harris Beach is located on Oregon's South Coast, along U.S. Highway 101, on the north side of Brookings.
