Harris Beach State Park

We camped at Harris Beach in Brookings, OR from August 4th to the 18th.

It’s a short walk to the Pacific Ocean . . .

We’ve been here before . . . Flirt remembers

Flirt in 2019 and in 2022
We stayed at At Rivers Edge Resort in 2019

The weather was a glorious change from the triple-digit furnace we’ve been used to. The temperatures next to the Pacific Ocean ranged from the 60’s to 70’s. Lots a humidity, but no heat.

Our Site A11

Our campsite even had a yard

Our favorite site – great ocean view

There are several yurts available at Harris Beach

Plenty of restroom/showers

Plenty of full hookup sites – but advance reservations are really necessary

S’mores

First time that we had s’mores in years

Sunset Trail

There are several walking trails in the campground. We tried all of them.

Fresh blackberries along the Sunset Trail

Flirt after our walks

Redwood Trail

We had to drive a few miles to get to this trail

Moss everywhere

Butte Trail

Just a short distance from the entrance to Harris Beach State Park. The trail had several switchbacks that took you higher and higher as you walked.
