Harris Beach was named after the Scottish pioneer George Harris who settled here in the late 1880s to raise sheep and cattle. The park boasts the largest island off the Oregon coast. Bird Island (also called Goat Island) is a National Wildlife Sanctuary and breeding site for such rare birds as the tufted puffin. The park offers sandy beaches interspersed with eroded sea stacks.

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 (download a brochure about common area plants). 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 (download a brochure about common area animals), 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.

June 12 lovely by i <3 hbsp
we have already gone there, and are going there two days from now. Last time we went, there were many beautiful sunsets. LOVE IT!!!
April 15 Beautiful Campground
Nice, clean and beautifully maintained campground with sheltered RV spots and lovely beaches. Campground has great showers and a laundry plus nice trails for walking the dog. Walk to the beach is downhill but you can drive down to a spot very close to one of the beaches
October 28 its soooooooooooo nice!!!!!! by Rbia :)
im doin a report on it
July 15 Changed over the years by Four Season Camper
This was one of our favorite destinations. It now however has been surrounded by urban growth and noise. The northern tree buffer was removed allowing in industrial noise and housing development to north has tarnished the views. The beach, however, is still very nice. It is a very busy place. Great central location for visiting Oregon and California sites.
