Day trip in the fall

We did not camp but spent the day walking the beach and around the crater lake. This was such a beautiful park, far exceeded my expectations, there were some small waterfalls too!

If you haven't been to Harrington Beach State Park, you are truly missing something. There's a nice walk around the quarry which is picturesque. It's not unusual to encounter deer on your walk as there are quite a few in that area. Nice place for a picnic, too and with the addition of camping a couple years back, this park... More

Being at the park was a spur of the moment stop while visiting family. It was very easily to get to & the view was gorgeous! The waves were nice & crashed into the shore like the ocean. The walk was relaxing. The water was a bit cold but there were about 10 families or so that were having there... More

Took my kids here on a whim. We enjoyed the beach, campground seemed nice to. The only issue were all the seagulls, but I wouldn't say that should take away from the overall review. We used the showers before leaving so we could get the sand off I'd us, definitely nice for a state park. Will be going back; possibly... More

There is a shuttle from the parking area to the other picnic areas and the South/dog beach, and the campground. This is a one-way approx 25 min shuttle, you cannot drive your vehicle past the Welcome Center,... More

We loved this state park campground! One hour north of Milwaukee, the location was between the city and beautiful Door County. Easy access from the highway. Our site had electricity, but no water or sewer. There is fresh water at the dump station so stop there first. Most sites have good privacy and shrubs surrounding the sites. A beautiful and... More

Staff upon check in is very friendly and helpful! Easy water fill at dump station! We found our spot easily! The campgrounds are very new (2009) so tree growth is sparse! But trees are planted and growing! This campground will be really nice with more shaded areas in ten or more years! We appreciated the private type campsites which possess... More

My husband went there as a kid and he took us there for a relaxing day at the beach. The lady told us to check out the quarry we did and jumped in cause there was a clear path that others have clearly done the same. We didn't see the very tiny signs for no swimming and was asked to... More
