Crissey Field State Recreation Area
Crissey Fields lies south of Brookings along the Winchuck River. It is also the site of a visitor’s center. Unfortunately, it was closed when we were there. We wandered to the beach beyond the visitor center and the amount of driftwood was shocking. It was so difficult to meander around the massive pieces of wood that we soon gave up and headed for a small woods which we discovered headed back to the parking area. It was a dreary, overcast day so we weren’t too unhappy to be on our way back to Bandon to a few areas we had missed the first time around.
We returned to Bandon for the night, as we weren’t able to book a hotel in Brookings. We stopped at several scenic beaches along the way.
