The Harbor at Harrisville Michigan
Harrisville Harbor is located on Michigan’s “Sunrise Side” and the beautiful shoreline of Lake Huron. We are strategically located on Lake Huron, half-way between the Straits of Mackinaw and Detroit. Our amenities include 97 slips, courtesy van, service docks and friendly town-folk.
Area businesses offer amenities from lodging, camping, dining, golfing, beaches or just a night out on the town.
The Harrisville Harbor of Refuge was created in 1961, when the US Army Corps of Engineers began the project. A large basin had to be created along the shoreline by dynamiting, dredging and removing huge boulders. After the basin was created, a large lime stone wall was constructed around the basin to create a harbor of refuge for anchorage and shelter. In 1963, a fixed dock was erected, providing dockage, fueling facilities, and a primitive comfort station. In 1986, with the assistance of the Michigan Waterways Commission, the current facilities of floating docks and a more modern comfort station was developed.
