My family and I have visited Harrison Bay State Park many times, especially when we lived in Harrison. It was only a 5 minute drive from our house. They have a nice large pool with a Kiddie pool, and it isn't really too crowded. We haven't camped here, so I can't speak to that. There are many safe places to... More

We stayed in Loop C Site 40. We loved the spot. Close to bathrooms, tree cover, plenty of space. Unfortunately we didn't really get to enjoy any of it because we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. I mean swarms of them. I have never had to deal with this anywhere else I have camped. They were so bad we left... More

We just camped here for 3 nights in Section A right on the lake and it was beautiful. We were greeted very warmly by the staff. The rangers were very helpful. We will be going back again!

The sites are extremely close! We were on the lake which was nice, but they don't spray for mosquitos and they were so bad we had to stay inside the rv. I had mosquito duty in bed and killed 9 before falling asleep. UGH Also, the bathrooms are very far away. So far, in fact, we drove there on our... More

Beautiful park, but thoroughly check out your campsite and loop before booking. Only one camp loop is really big rig accessible. Avoid the B unless your camper is smaller. Love the lake. Gorgeous sunsets.

We came to Harrison, TN to visit some friends. They have lots of things to do at this camp ground. The have an Olympic size swimming pool. A baseball field. Some of the sites are right on the banks of Lake Chickamauga. Beautiful at sundown and at night when the moon is reflecting off of it. The bath houses are... More

We've spent many days visiting and camping at Harrison Bay. It's a beautiful park and, as members of Friends of Harrison Bay State Park, we try to give back to the park that has given us so many great memories. The park is undergoing major renovations right now and when completed it will be the perfect destination for all, whether... More

This popular, spacious state park in the Chattanooga, TN area has it all: trails for walking, places to put in kayaks, canoes and motorized boats, sites for fishing and swimming in the lake, plenty of camping spaces and bath houses, a great swimming pool, and a super restaurant by the marina.

Serene camp site with electricity and water RV hookups. Lots of ducks, deer and squirrels for a beautiful restful experience. Restrooms and showers were not updated, but adequate. A couple walking trail loops, one us a mile and the other is five miles. As I write this, sitting in a lawn chair with hot tea watching ducks glide across the... More
