This was our first time camping in Wisconsin and we got to say we absolutely love this park. Most of the sites are pretty secluded so if you enjoy your privacy I will love this place. Everything was clean and updated including the bathrooms. The campsites are about a mile or two from Lake Michigan but it is an easy drive or hike as there are many trails that go through the park. When we went to the lake level was up so high due to flooding that we weren’t really able to enjoy the beach but normally there is plenty of coastline for enjoying some beach time.
Had a great time here 1st week of June, with a reservation at one of the walk in sites. Bugs weren’t an issue yet, but i could imagine it getting bad depending on the season. I would definitely come back to try another one of the walk in sites
The quarry and the beach area were great, and there were a ton of picnic spots overlooking the lake

The water on the Lake Michigan beach has a high bacteria level so swimming is at your own risk, however, we will swim anyways and then shower at the campground showers bc they are huge, well maintained, and worth using even if you don’t swim. The sites are well manicured, but trees are limited as they had to cut many down due to the emerald ash borer but they have replanted. sites are spaced well apart. Biking was awesome. great paths. both beaches werw kind of dirty and not very soft sand. water was freezing as expected even for early August.
Always a blast. Secluded and can be alone.
This is a nice little campground but they had to cut down most of the trees due to the emerald ash borrer. when the sun is out it gets HOT.
Just south of Madison. Very large camp ground , nice people spacious sites.
Just outside of Milwaukee, Harrington Beach State Park is a quiet and quick escape to the good life. The huge sandy beach spans the entire length of the park - which features plenty of trails, a quarry, and a historical element. The campsites are clean, well-groomed and set apart from the rest of the park. A private, water accessible "walk-in" site is also available for those passing through on kayaks.
The tent non-electric campsites are fantastic. We had a nice private campsite that was completely wooded all around it. The campsite had a fire pit and picnic table that were both in great condition. The restroom and showers were very well maintained. They also offer a shuttle to the beach.
