Founded in the early 20th century and later incorporated in 1951, Brookings is a peaceful, seaside community in southwest Oregon. The town takes its name from John E. Brookings, the founder of the Brookings Lumber & Box Company which helped create the town.
Brookings was, for most of its existence, a company town, chosen mostly for its lush surroundings teeming with endless seas of evergreen trees. Now Brookings prospers in a different way, with rapidly rising tourism numbers and an increase in its retiree community. When you book an RV in Brookings, it will become immediately clear why so many people venture to the charming, coastal town to see its lavish coastlines, elegant forests, and stunning sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. The town is quite remote, so it takes a few hours of driving when you rent an RV to get to cities like Medford or Crescent City, further adding to its mysterious appeal. If that wasn’t enough to get you excited, then the dazzling cultural events and celebrations in town surely will. The Southern Oregon Kite Festival, the Winter Art & Chocolate Festival, The Festival of the Arts, and the Azalea Festival all contribute to making this culturally rich town one of the best places to visit in the Pacific Northwest.
In Oregon, there is no shortage of parks and recreation areas. Oregon residents are crazy about their divine forests and mountains, and this contagious spirit has infected the crowds of tourists who choose to vacation here. Brookings is in a favorable spot in southern Oregon, sandwiched between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean, making for some stunning views. You don't even need to leave town to find a state park when you rent an RV, as Harris Beach State Park is located in the middle of Brookings waiting for you to walk its sandy beaches and swim in its picturesque waters. The park includes Goat Island, one of the largest islands off the coast of Oregon, and a protected area for migratory birds and a breeding ground for puffins. There is a campground on site that can accommodate you and your Brookings camper rental, so that you can wake up to ocean views.
The Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor is another site worth seeing, located several miles north of town. This long, thin stretch of coastline is home to enchanting views that you can see while driving along the highway in your Brookings motorhome rental. The corridor has some of the most photo-worthy landscapes in all of Oregon, with oddly shaped rocks and natural stone arches carved by the ocean. In addition to emerald hills slipping into the sea, there are rocky islands off the coast, sand dunes, and evidence of ancient people from over 10,000 years ago.
If you dip south of the border into California, you can visit Tolowa Dunes State Park, yet another fabulous coastal park with dreamlike views and glorious sunsets. There are towering sand dunes, small ponds and lakes, nature trails, and thousands of birds living in the remote and quiet park, perfect for peace and quiet. If you still feel like venturing out for more scenery, Crater Lake National Park is a gem of a park in the Cascade Mountains a few hours’ drive away. The park is centered around Crater Lake, an alpine body of water housed in the imploded remnants of Mount Mazama.
This highly popular vacation destination is the place to be no matter the month, so naturally, there are some great RV resorts and parks in the area. Beachfront RV Park is close to town, with spacious campsites, pet walking areas, picnic spots, and white sand beaches for lounging during the day.
AtRivers Edge RV Resort will make you feel right at home, with tons of amenities like a fitness center, an office store, a game room, a clubhouse, laundry facilities, hot showers, and a large fishing area for master anglers.
Whaleshead Beach Resort has rental cabins, RV campsites, swimming ponds, scenic overlooks, nature trails running through the woods, and its own spa. Where ever you decide to stay when you book a campervan rental in Brookings, you are bound to have a blast.
Brookings absolutely has it going on in the nature department, but the town itself is quite small and leans heavily on its natural beauty for tourism. There are a few things to see while walking or driving through town, like the Capella by the Sea, a lovely chapel used for weddings and private events. This spectacular building is truly remarkable with a unique style and elegant woodwork. The chapel was built by notable resident Elmo Williams, a Hollywood producer, writer, and director who lived in the town for many years. A monument to the man can also be found in Brookings, celebrating his long life of over a hundred years.
The Chetco Valley Historical Museum is another noteworthy tourist destination, housed in a tiny home built in 1857. The Blake House was once a dreamy stagecoach stop overlooking the ocean but now serves to preserve local culture and help visitors dive into the past, learning about the indigenous people, and the first settlers.
If you still long for more excitement, take your Brookings RV rental to Medford for some great museums, historic buildings, and shopping experiences.
