Welcome to the City of Harrisville, Michigan in Alcona County
The City of Harrisville, Michigan is on the western shore of Lake Huron
and has a harbor for recreational boaters. The harbor is a center for salmon and
trout fishing. It is also a designated "Harbor of Refuge" on Lake Huron by the
US Coast Guard. The Lake Huron beaches in and around Harrisville (including two
state parks) have been recognized as being among the "top ten in Michigan."
"Old-fashioned lake vacations abound on this pretty stretch of Lake Huron."
Harrisville, Michigan is on the edge of Huron National Forest, which offers outdoor recreational opportunities such as hunting, swimming, cross-country skiing and trout fishing. The forest contains 330 miles (530 km) of hiking trails. The Huron and Manistee National Forests were separately designated, but were combined in 1945 for administrative purposes.
Sturgeon Point Light Station, a lighthouse and museum is just a few miles to the north, and is open to the public. The town also boasts Harrisville State Park, which includes a wooded campground right along the beach.
