Harrison Lake State Park, Fayette, OH
Harrison Lake State Park has 203 campsites with north and south sections separated by a lake. The north section is the main campground where there is a ranger station for registration, a dump station and bath houses.
Although we arrived on a Monday, a full week prior to Labor Day, all sites in the north campground were reserved through the holiday. We took one of the three walk in sites available on the south side.
After filling up with water we made our way around the lake to site 237 located across from the vault toilets.
There was only one other camper in our section. By Friday there was not one spot available.
To take showers we had a choice of driving over to the north campground or walk/bike around the pedestrian trail around the lake.
Monte tackled a project he has been dreading doing-he serviced the topper on our big slide. We had been having issues with the slide for a long time. The tape along the seam was bunched up.
After removing the slide, Monte spent the next two days scraping off the residue left by the tape. He washed the roof of the slide, applied new tape and re-installed the slide.
