Friends of Harrington Beach

Puckett’s Pond Shelter Update

Another Friends improvement at the park!

The Friends of HBSP, with the help of a Knowles-Nelson Matching Grant, have expanded and partially enclosed the shelter at Pucketts Pond. This improved facility will provide an outdoor venue for presentation of our popular Interpretive Programs during the camping season. Look for a schedule of programs to come out soon. The Friends also purchased a video projector with the ability to offer large screen presentations. As with the Welcome Center and other shelters, Pucketts Shelter is available for day rental. Contact the park office @ 262-285-3015 to reserve today.
