I recently visited Harrison Bay State Park and was really pleased to see that it is a well maintained, very safe State Park with opportunities for day only visits thru overnight camping. There were people of all backgrounds and ages really enjoying the Park.

Harrison Bay State Park is off highway 58 in the Harrison area of Chattanooga. It is a fun state park that our family visits multiple times during the year. We have tent camped there but we typically just go for the day. There are picnic tables with grills located by the lake where we like to set up and enjoy... More

Very crowded and close to neighboring campers. Can't imagine how congested it would be on a weekend. Good value for money

Been going to Harrison Bay all my life. Camping, swimming, fishing, and a play park area, walking track, places for reunions and birthday parties that are covered. Over by the boat dock is a wonderful place to eat. Clean bathhouses and security. You can not go wrong by staying at Harrison Bay State Park.

Great place for boaters but campground has several deficiencies.. Many campsites are incredibly unlevel. Saw many campers unable to even remotely level their campers. Avoid section B unless your camper is small. I realize the local terrain is hilly but spreading campsites further apart would have eliminated much of the leveling issue. On the plus side the marina restaurant is... More

Spent a week camping at HBSP recently with DW and best friend. The park was very well maintained with spacious sites and bath houses were clean and plentiful. The crew were very friendly and given attention to the Park. I will go back again to camp and fish as the Park wraps around Chickamauga Lake.

The campsites are extremely close to each other. The sites themselves also are not spacious. Boats started going by at 6am. We stayed in a site next to the water-beautiful views and the kids could swim right at the campsite. We were there on Memorial Day weekend so every site was full. I would return at a less busy time... More

Links are long. Kinda reminds of hiking but in golf. Love the water views. The clubhouse is very nice with a rustic feel. If you need to really unwind this is the place.
