Brookings - Harbor

Gold Beach

Brookings was named after John E. Brookings, president of the Brookings Lumber and Box Company, which founded the city in 1908.

Due to its location, Brookings is subject to winter temperatures considered unseasonably warm for the Oregon Coast. This is due in part to the marine influences from its location on the Pacific Ocean, but mostly from its situation at the foot of the Klamath Mountains, whose winds compress and warm the air flowing onto Brookings. This is called the Brookings effect or Chetco effect.

For Brookings-Harbor events, festivals, live entertainment and happenings go to our Oregon Coast Calendar.



Wood Fired Stills and Craft Brandy - A Gem of the Oregon Coast
Brookings - Harbor

There are wood-fired stills so deep in the Oregon forest that they’re a secret to many.


But those two stills are legal, and they’re producing international award-winning brandies and liqueurs.


Brandy Peak Distillery is one of those rare gems that has put Oregon on the world map for craft distilleries.

David Nowlin, a former yacht broker in San Diego, moved with his wife Georgia in 1993 to a 57-acre patch of Douglas firs and blackberry bushes just north of Brookings.


They fell in love with the place, not far from the Pacific Ocean and Brandy Peak, the highest mountain top in Curry County.

Brookings: Otters, Osprey, and a Cozy B&B
Brookings - Harbor

brookings4

Where but the Oregon coast could you watch an otter dig his own “hot tub” in the sand?

 

And where but the Oregon coast could you watch the otter while admiring osprey flying to redwood forests?

 

We’ve traveled this coast for more than 10 years, and have never seen anything like the hybrid otters that live here.

 

This one climbed out of the Winchuck River near the edge of the ocean and acted as if he was going to the spa. He created a little dip on the beach, then rolled and wriggled about, and tossed sand as if he was getting a salt scrub at the spa.

 

The Brookings otters are hybrids, with the long, lean body of a river otter, but the playful antics of sea otters. They swim in the Winchuck and the Pacific, one of the only otters known to inhabit both worlds.

Kayaking At The Chetco, Brookings Harbor
Brookings - Harbor

A post from The Redwood Empire blog

800px-BrookingsHarbor

The mouth of the Chetco River at Brookings Harbor, where you can put in for kayaking or canoeing. I don't suggest going toward the mouth, unless it is a particularly flat day, you are aware of tides, you are a great swimmer, and you have a really warm wet suit. Otherwise, you might need the U.S. Coast Guard. (Photo by "Cacophony," Wikipedia, cc-sa 3.0.)

Be Safe on Oregon Beaches
Brookings - Harbor

As the first winter storms and accompanying large swells roll across the South Coast, we urge residents and visitors to exercise caution when visiting local beaches.

Experts have predicted several high tides the rest of this month which, combined with high seas, is a good reason to hit local beaches and do some wave watching and beachcombing.
