Harrison, Michigan Parks, Trails and Information

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.

Paved Trails

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.
