The ramp to Lake Harris is really nice. 5 boats can launch at once and lots of parking. Three ramps are deep water. There are facilities here, and boat dockage. There is also a facility for dining rental. Lighting improves safety as well.

We absolutely love taking our family here to go on hikes, enjoy the lake and go fishing. There are also sand volleyball courts and soccer fields where they hold tournaments. It has an excellent pavilion which can be rented out for special occasions as well....More

We live across the road from Hickory Point and they have lots you soccer going on in their huge fields. Also a great boat launching area and enough metal docks to last many many years to come.

We have only gone to Hickory Point to launch our boat. There are many ramps, that are well designed with easy access. The ramps get a little busy/crowded in the morning and afternoon if there is a fishing tournament, so stay on top of the...More

Yes, pets are permitted. But they must be leased and you must ick up after them. Hope this helps.
