    Michigan is a big lake, so the water is cold! Lovely park. Just make sure that you take your garbage with you when you leave so help keep the park pristine.  more »

    Great park and camping spot. We were in a 40' travel trailer and had plenty of room. Sites seem narrow from the front but most open up in the back. Good vegetation privacy between sites. Pit toilets t...  more »

    We will be back. I planned this as a day tip with the family. There is camping hiking swimming and is dog friendly. We parked at the outer parking lot so we could hike down to the north beach to go swimming. The trails were clean and maintained with the occasional hiker/s. The beach has wonderful views and was clean. My daughter said it looked like we were on an island. There was other families/people at the beach. The beach area is large so plenty of room to move around and be spaced out. Dogs are allowed at the south beach but not the north beach. But we did see an occasional dog walk by. They also have electric campsites. Our next trip we plan camping to get the full experience. Happy trails!

    Really nice and clean state beach. WI Resident fee for a daily pass was $8, not too bad. I didn't get to try sleeping in the campgrounds, but they looked clean and well shaded. The beach is beautiful!! Softest sand, i have felt in a while. There are picnic tables and benches throughout overlooking the beach. There are little trails around leading to the Quarry. Definitely a family environment, ohh and they also have a "doggie beach" for you animal lovers

    Our first visit to Harrington Beach State Park won't be our last. We had a wonderful time visiting North beach and walking the path. We plan on returning to check out some of the activities at observatory. We also drove around the campground and wrote down some of the best looking sites for our family, I highly recommend doing this for any campsite so you can find the best fit for your needs! We will be back!

    Great walk-in camping. Clean facilities. The quarry lake is beautiful. Not much to see beyond that but we had a great time.

    Close enough to Milwaukee to enjoy regularly but far enough to feel relaxed. Absolutely gorgeous and immaculate. This was my first state park visited as an adult and the experience has inspired me to visit every Wisconsin state park!
