Stayed here over a weekend while so played in a golf tournament. Lots to like about this park, the kids loved the large activity area and great for bikes. Fantastic place for anything water-related...fishing, boating etc. My one word of caution is for anyone with a large camper or motor home. They have just paved and re-worked a lot of... More

Harrison Bay State Park is beautiful, they have the river, camping, restaurant, boat ramp, and a pool for a nominal fee. Unless you are camping then you can swim for free at the pool at the camping area.

We recently stayed here in our small travel trailer. Turned out to be a wet/rainy weekend....but the kids all had fun in the rain. It was base camp for us while exploring Chattanooga, TN. It was easy driving to Ruby Falls and the Aquarium. Our site on the A Loop (A 9) was very level and paved. The table and... More

DO NOT TENT CAMP HERE!!!! Horrible Racoons that can unzip tent doors. Yes. I am serious. We stayed here once several months ago and yes there were racoons that would hover around the perimeter while you were cooking on the camp grill and would knock things off the picnic table while you were sleeping. But, this time (Sep '15) was... More

Chose Harrison Bay as our camp spot after a day of whitewater rafting. It was pretty easy to find and check in. I reserved 2 tent camping spots and the map on the website is very accurate. Purposely chose 2 spots together away from the others and we had plenty of privacy. The spots are very close together in general... More

I can only speak for the hiking trails but my wife and I had a great time. We did the 4+ mile hike. The trails were not too difficult and it takes you around the lake. We even saw two deer within 20' of us. We will definitely go back.

We were camping in a fifth wheel..were assigned to campground C. It is a great place, lots of trees (some a bit close and difficult to maneuver around) gravel, level sites with cement pads for tables, firepits, trashcans provided for each site, bath houses very clean. Campground A has paved parking sites and is more open...so next time we will... More

I recently managed to go on a little trip to Harrison bay and loved it. The lake is absolutely beautiful and clean. I don't know about the camping or hiking but I do know that if you have a boat and can go cruising around the lake, you definitely should! There are lots of little coves where you can toss... More

Clean park with lots to do. Hiking, biking, fishing, golf, swimming, camping. Not the same scenery as some of the other local parks, but a great day get away ( or weekend for camping ).

I do not recommend camping here. The grass was as tall as our knees in campsite A. The bathhouse floor was soaking wet every time we went in there due to the shower/toilet combos. There is a HUGE raccoon problem. I've never been to a place so infiltrated with those animals. And the messed up our reservations by cutting us... More
