Harrisville State Park features a campground and day-use area nestled in a stand of pine and cedar trees along the sandy shores of Lake Huron. The park is within walking distance of the resort town of Harrisville. Established in 1921, it is one of Michigan's oldest state parks. The original park area consisted of six acres, much smaller than the current 107-acre size. It also offers a picnic area & pavilion, two mile trek hiking trail as well as non-groomed cross-country trails, and a metal detecting area.

Harrisville State Park is within a short drive of several popular area attractions. Among them are the Sturgeon Point Lighthouse and Museum, the resort town of Harrisville and Negwegon State Park. For art and music lovers, there is a summer concert series on Wednesday nights at the harbor and a Labor Day Weekend Art and Music Show in the town of Harrisville.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 29 Outstanding by Dave
Beautiful park. Paved bike and walking trails, clean sites, restrooms and showers, beautiful beach, crystal clear water in Lake Huron, doggie beach. Magnificent.
June 8 One of the Best State Parks in Michigan by Roseanne
I say one of the best because I have not been to all the State Parks but I have been to at least 20 of them. Out of the 20, this is #1 by far. Beautiful Park. Very clean. Nice beach. Short walk or bike ride into the little town. Everyone in the park and town very friendly. We go to this park at least 2-3 times per year.
February 17 Best Park in Michigan by Andy
Vist this park every year, very clean, very well kept, Right on Lake Huron! Awesome Pavilion for parties and events! Great place to bring the Family! Downtown Harrisville is an absolutely amazing place to walk, shop and eat, and is less than 5 minuets away! Great Park, Great City!
October 2 A beautiful place to camp in the fall by gc from West Point
We have stayed here every year for about 10 days each, past several years. Park needs to trim trees and brush back quite a bit, though as so much is hanging down, scraping the units as you come and go. Sites need trimmed back considerably also. Employees are very friendly and helpful, ammenities are fine.
