We love camping at Harrison Bay State Park. We have a travel trailer and camp there often. It has water and electric hookups (30 & 50 amps). There are 2 dumpstations available. The rangers and maintenance crew are awesome. They have done upgrades to all the camp sites, roads, and bathrooms. Lots of wildlife and fishing there. They have birds... More

Campsites are extremely close together. Not our favorite. Crowded and somewhat difficult to maneuver towing a 24'.

Fun place to put your boat in the lake. Fun place to camp as they offer sites with electric hookups and water or just a spot if you really want to ruff it. They have two nice pools also and good places to ride your bikes.

This is a very nice state park. It has everything you need for an enjoyable day visit or longer stay. The only complaint I have is about the pool diving board and deep end not being open all the time (during swim season, of course). The diving board is the draw for most kids at the pool. It should always... More

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
