Brookings is a quaint fishing and lumber town that is situated along the southwestern coast of Oregon, just six miles from the California border. Located along US 101, Brookings is at the beginning of a stretch of what is arguably the Northwest's most incredible stretch of coastline. The Port of Brookings offers all the sights and sounds of a working port, along with a new Boardwalk Shopping Complex and uncrowded beaches. If you love to explore tide pools, listening to the sound of the waves while seabirds swirl overhead, visit Harris Beach State Park at the north end of Brookings. Here, you'll find campsites and hiking trails, and a free day use area with picnic tables. Fishing and boating, surfing, hiking, golf and whale watching are all popular sports here. The Redwoods Nature Trail, just 8 miles east from Brookings, has a one-mile, moderate hiking trail that loops through an old growth forest, crossing several streams with spectacular views. There are four species of ferns that grow along the trail, and the trees here are between 300 and 800 years old, with heights of over 300 feet! Other things to do in Brookings includes visiting Azalea Park, attending the Brookings Towne Center Farmer's Market, which is held every Saturday, and exploring The Pelican Bay Lighthouse, located on a bluff overlooking scenic Brookings Harbor.

Surrounding areas: Gold Beach, Oregon (24.7 mi)

Brookings Weather & Climate

Northwest California near the Smith River and the Oregon border has a cool weather climate year round. Summer temperatures are normally around the 65-degree mark, and rarely exceed 80 degrees. Unlike many other parts of the state, rain can be expected almost any month of the year, although the official rainy season runs October through March or early April. The average annual rainfall is 75 inches per year. Located near the Pacific Ocean, this region frequently experiences low clouds and fog right along the coastline, with clearing the further inland you travel. The same cool, ocean mists that nurture the giant redwoods of the region provide relief for visitors who come to the area to escape the summer heat of the interior valleys.
