beauty in Brookings!

visited this fabulous area last September and can not wait to go back!!! The campground is situated right at Harris Beach with walking trails to the ocean. The evening sunsets over the rocks and water are worth the wait every night! Full services including a laundry and just a few minutes to town to groceries or anything else you may need. Don't miss this one!!!
