Upgrades coming

Beachfront RV Park will be getting a significant upgrade in the next year. The RV park is a favorite stop for visitors as well as locals due to the beautiful views of the ocean.


Significant upgrades are coming to Beachfront RV Park in the Port of Brookings, starting early next year.

On Oct. 7, the Port of Brookings Harbor Commission approved sub-contractor and Brookings-based McLennan Excavation to make electrical upgrades at Beachfront RV Park, beating a competing bid by about $188,000.

All told, upgrades to the busy tourist destination to the tune of $657,000 will start next year, with a projected completion date in April.

According to harbor staff reports, the port budget for the project is $558,416, but another $100,000 was transferred over from the general fund to cover the remaining costs.

“The project consists of providing six new RV sites and modifications to sites 76 through 98,” said Port Manager Gary Dehlinger.

Specifically, the details include:

  • Six new sites
  • Front row sites will be upgraded to power 50amp/30amp/20amp GFCI service with new pedestals
  • New water and sewer lines to sites 76 thru 98 and the six new sites
  • All RV sites will receive new spring-loaded sewer caps
  • The relocation of up to two existing light poles, and the relocation of two transformers
  • Sites 76 thru 98:

○      Demo of all existing concrete pads

○      Demo of existing electrical building and replace with outdoor electrical panel

○      Realign sites at 45 degree angle and pour new concrete pads

○      Grading to match existing roads

  • Demo existing concrete pads at the 6 new sites
  • Demo existing small restroom at the 6 new sites

In July, Beachfront achieved an 85% occupancy rate - it’s busiest month this year and almost a 25% increase compared to the same time period two years ago.

“Half a million cars went through that RV park in 2020,” said Dehlinger to the Pilot.
