Harrisville is an unincorporated little village located along the shores of Lake Huron in northern Michigan, between the towns of Alcona and Greenbush. It is the county seat for Alcona County and is situated right at the junction of State Highway 72 and U.S. Highway 23. Tourism is the main industry in Harrisville. The Harrisville State Park is just south of town and offers swimming and camping, boating and fishing. The town of Harrisville has a very picturesque harbor and several charter boat services operate from this harbor. In addition, Harbor Park is located inside the town limits, just to the north of Main Street. This park is a picturesque spot along the mouth of Mill Creek that is perfect for a picnic or relaxing. Several bed & breakfasts and motels are located along the Lake Huron shoreline at Harrisville, and the Harrisville Harbor and Sturgeon Point Lighthouse is a popular tourist attraction. Over 130 miles of trails are in the area for hiking, biking and cross country skiing, and the nearby Au Sable River is popular for canoeing and kayaking. Nearby, the town of Oscoda holds several special events throughout the year, including their annual "Art on the Beach" and "Paul Bunyan Days."

Harrisville Weather & Climate

The West Central Portion of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, near Wilson State Park, experiences four distinct seasons. There is a saying for the region that goes "if you don't like the weather, wait a day and it will change." This is true because the area is influenced by both the cold, dry air coming down from the Arctic, and the warm, humid air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico. Summers are generally warm and humid, but not unbearably so, and winters are cold and snowy. Nearer the shoreline, lake effect breezes help moderate the temperatures in the summer and moisture laden air coming off the lake in the winter creates heavy snowfalls in some areas. Spring can be a mixed bag of cool temperatures and snow, or mild with periods of rain and thunderstorms. Fall is often the sunniest, driest time of the year in Michigan's Lower Peninsula.
