Harrison is in Central Michigan, near US-127. Budd Lake and Little Long Lake are two
shimmering lakes that attract fishermen, beach-goers, and recreational boaters to
the area for summertime fun.
Wilson State Park
Wilson State Park is located on the western shore of Budd Lake and offers a sandy
beach for family fun. Bring your own swimming float, beach toy, or sand castle construction
device (shovel) and relax. The park has a nice beach house, located a short distance
from the water. Wilson State Park offers two campgrounds and a mini cabin for
overnight or weekly stays. The park's picnic facilities include one shelter and
many picnic tables scattered around the park. Other facilities include a couple of
playgrounds, a basketball court, and volleyball court. For camping reservation information,
see the DNR's web site.
From the entrance of Wilson State Park, there is a short paved trail that goes north to Townline Lake Road and ends near Hillcrest. The trail provides a scenic view of Budd Lake.
North of Wilson State Park on Townline Lake Road is Hayes Township Park.
The park entrance is next to the township offices. A short, paved walking trail from the parking lot
leads to the athletic facilities and a deck overlooking a ravine and wetland. The park has
well-maintained, modern basketball courts and tennis courts.
