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.

Family campground

Harrington Beach State Park has a 69-unit family campground including five walk-to sites, a group campsite, an accessible cabin and a kayak site. 31 sites have 50 amp electrical hookups (no per site water and sewer hook-ups), 33 non-electrical sites and five walk-to sites.  Five of our non-electric sites in the 200 loop are first-come, first-serve non-reservable sites.  For more information on the non-reservable sites, call the park office at 262-285-3015.  Each campsite has a campfire ring and a picnic table. 

The campground is open from the first Wednesday in May into October. During the warm weather season, showers, flush toilet and family shower rooms are available in the family campground. A trailer dump station and a fresh water fill-up station are available near the entrance to the campgrounds.
