We were traveling through Michigan with our dogs and kids and wanted a dog-friendly campground on the water. We chose this specifically because of the dog beach, and because we hadn't been to Lake Huron before. It is crowded--but electric sites meant we weren't blown...More
Took a family trip and it was wonderful. A quiet little campground. The beach is very beautiful and relaxing. The bathrooms are clean and very spacious. Loved walking the beach and looks for petosky stones.
Heading north on US-23, the next state park you'll encounter after leaving Tawas Point is Harrisville. While Tawas Point has the better beach, Harrisville definitely has the better campground, which is ironic given that it's much harder to get a reservation at Tawas Point. The...More
We do a lot of camping all over the US and Harrisville State Park in Michigan is one of our favorite parks. Not only is the park absolutely beautiful, located right on the shoreline of Lake Huron surrounded by natural Michigan forest, but the staff...More
We were pleasantly surprised by this campground! Most campground that are known for having great beaches have little to no trees, but here you're still surrounded by nature!
We stayed in site 42, but next time we're definitely aiming for a site on the beach...More

As far as what to bring (sorry didn't see that part at first), your typical camping gear. We actually travel with another couple that has all the "stuff", so we just bring out tent, sleeping items, chairs and food. Each site as a picnic table and a nice fire ring. You can get wood there. It's 6 dollars Afro a small bundle. We got ours just outside the park. Someone was a selling by there home. 3 large bundles for $10. If you can, go that route. Many people had bikes. The beach is nice, so bring items to hang out there. The town is just a short walk. There's not a lot to do there. We walked to the harbor, went into a couple stores, then the guys hung out at a sports bar while we got ice cream and went to the Moose Store, which is right on US 23. We broke camp on a Sunday, so we went back to the Sport's bar for breakfast so we wouldn't have to deal with the cooking mess. You might want to bring some cards or other games. We just usually talked around the fire. I hope this helps and that you have fun!
