Campground Description

With thousands of feet of low bank waterfront, our south facing beaches have some of the warmest waters found on Harrison Lake. Our site is 90+ acres, and features trailer, tent, and group sites. Cogburn Creek is just a short walk up the beach. Real sand and lots of stones for skipping too! Our site is perfect for family time - no wifi and limited cell service will help you unplug, unwind, and concentrate on the things that matter most - memories with friends and family.

Local Attractions

Harrison Lake is full of possibilities for families, adventurers and people with all types of interests. Boating, hiking, natural hot springs, golf, off road adventures, and the beach are just a few of the activities you can find around Harrison. The village of Harrison Hot Springs has many options for dining and activities and hosts many festivals every year. Harrison Mills boasts Sandpiper Golf Course and Sasquatch Mountain offers great skiing and mountain biking. Explore valleys full of lush forests, join an indigenous led tour to learn about first nations history and culture or cruise the lake via charter or rental. The possibilities are endless.
