About Lake Harris Campground

Lake Side Rating

Lake Harris is fed by the mighty Hudson River in its beginning stages and is sheltered among large hardwood trees which offer splendid color contrasts throughout the year. While the lake offers many water craft opportunities, many love visiting the Visitor Interpretive Center or the Santanoni Preserve Historic Site, both close by. Lake Harris Campground is located on the northern shore of 275 acre Lake Harris. A number of the sites offer a good degree of privacy. Camping equipment from tents to 40 foot RVs can be accommodated. Lake Harris Campground offers a variety of recreational opportunities including: canoeing and boating, fishing, hiking, and bicycling.

Offers 89 campsites, 50 are directly on (or set back from) the water. There are NO electric sites.
