We stayed at Harrison Lake last year for our oldest daughters birthday. Although we didn’t have the best neighbors we really enjoyed the park! We rode bikes to the beach pretty much every single day and then through the main part of the park! We cannot wait to go again!
We had a great time camping and trick-or-treating at this campground over the weekend. We had a few issues but they were resolved quickly. They always seemed to have some sort of activity going on from horseshoe tournaments to football games for the kids. The beach was clean and they had 5 fishing lakes. They also have a store and a food truck on the premises.
Please know that out of the 500 sites available they are mainly seasonal campers. Golf carts are driven around during the day. Golf carts are not permitted after 8pm and quiet time begins at 11pm.
The hosts are terrific: the campsites and fire pits are immediately cleaned, the hosts checked us in remotely (saved us a trip to the office), provided tips for getting quality firewood, cleaned the bathrooms regularly even during a busy holiday weekend.
The campsites are a bit small, but fortunately the other campers were friendly and helpful. Some of the non-electric sites were used by RVs running generators all day and night, so that was a bummer for those of us hoping non-electric would mean more quiet.
The bathrooms were scrupulously clean and always available without a line.
Three minor complaints: vault toilets instead of bathrooms in the non-electric area, only one gray water dump on the entire south side of the lake, the park lacks much in the way of hiking (but does have boating, fishing, etc.)
Busy and active are the two words that come to mind there seems to always be something happening here sure it’s a camp ground but it more has that small town in summer vibe from the common activities to the golf cart parade of sight seeing it has all the amenities you’d want for trash electric water and WiFi but quit privacy might be difficult
This is actually two different campgrounds -- North and South. The North Campground has larger sites spaced a bit apart to afford you some privacy (or at least as much as you can expect at a state park campground). The grounds and facilities looked to be in good condition, too.
The South Campground (where we stayed) has smaller sites that were much more closely packed together. There are non-electric sites that are a bit deeper but still quite narrow so your neighbors may be right there when you look around. The facilities in this campground also seemed to be in good, clean condition.
The one thing that was bit unnerving was that throughout both campgrounds, there are sites on the outer edge that are next to a main road with nothing but a small, wooden split-rail fence dividing the state park from the outside world. While the park is in a rural area, it still seems odd to have zero security for your site and your belongings from anyone who just happens to park on the road and wander in.
This seemed to be a popular campground for families -- especially little kids on bikes, so be extra cautious when driving around or even riding your own bike because the kids seemed to have no concept of safely riding around. They would often change direction or dart out unexpectedly.
Things to do include a good-sized, no-wake lake that was a pleasure to use our kayak on. There is a small beach that seemed popular, although the signs warning about all the dangers in the lake made us question entering the water for swimming. There also is a hiking/mountain biking trail that goes around the lake. It wasn't well-marked and seemed to just be a series of connections through some woods, down roads, and across parts of the developed areas of the park. So, not a terrible experience but just not what we expected.
We rented a yurt as a local weekend escape. Our kids loved the yurt. It was nice with a little mini fridge and 4 double beds. Campground showers and bathrooms are clean. It is one of the only state parks in northwest Ohio, a beautiful little spot nestled in farmland of Ohio. The lake is nice for swimming and there are bike rentals which was fun as well. We did not use it, but there is a dog beach as well. Sites are crowed and close together.
We have been here a few times. Really enjoy the secluded sites and the lake. It’s a small campground but it’s clean and quiet. Most sites don’t have water hookups but they do have electric. There isn’t much to do outside of the campground but there is a nice lake with canoe and kayak rentals. Very pet friendly and even has a dog beach.
Tents are welcome, as well as big campers. Have a couple of cabins and yurts. A lot of groups camp here. Not a lot of kids activities, no pool, but does have a beach on the lake, canoe and kayak and paddleboaed rentals and trails for hiking. If you want a quiet retreat, this is usually the place.
