Description
The community of Harrisville, Michigan is on the shore of Lake Huron about an hour\'s drive south of Alpena. The Harrisville 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.\"

With a beautiful downtown and fresh breeze from Lake Lake Huron Harrisville is a mecca of inspiration for writers and artists who summer in the area.

Harrisville is also 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.

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.
