Harrison Bay State Park reviews
Very nice park with large marina. We camped in section B which had some water views and larger pull through sites. Sites were full hookup and had a gravel area with picnic table and fire ring...

The best seat in the house. On the water, next to the bathroom and peaceful. We even had the excitement of the park rangers recovering a honey bee swarm that was right next to our site. The bathrooms and showers were great and the other guests are very social. There is a big bull frog nearby and a small heard of deer that may walk through after dark. Given the opportunity we will come back to this campground again. The site shown is A47.
Went for a picnic, very clean but no trash can. We brought it home with us.
