We spent the weekend at the State Park in Harrisville. There were two tents in our party, and our large lot had plenty of room for them. The recently upgraded bathrooms were clean, though busy. The bathroom facilities have many unisex shower rooms, which also contain toilets. When we arrived at 3 p.m. on Friday, all showers were full, and there are only 3 stalls in the restroom to use. There is another bathroom at the day use area, which was a short walk, and not used much. The beach is great and large, and there's an outside shower to rinse off before walking back to camp. As other reviewers have mentioned, firewood is available on-site at a unique vending machine, though we opted for the $25 load which was delivered to our site for us. The campground is very popular and was full on this weekend. Quiet hours begin at 10 p.m., though it was so noisy that our daughter couldn't go to sleep until almost 11:30 p.m., which was a problem. (This wasn't the campground's fault, but rather some noisy neighbors, though it would have been nice if quiet hours were enforced.) There are a lot of unsupervised children riding bikes on the road, so drivers have to be very careful, especially around the bathroom area. With the breeze from Lake Huron, I didn't noticed very many mosquitoes, which was nice, especially with the wooded areas. Overall, we would probably visit here again.
