Harrison Bay State Park is a 1,200-acre (4.9 km2) state demonstration park developed by the Tennessee Valley Authority in the 1930s along the shores of Chickamauga Lake. Opened in 1937, the bay gets it name from the now partially submerged town of Harrison, Tennessee. It was built at the same time as Booker T. Washington State Park.
The park has a 4.2-mile (6.8-km) hiking path around the lake and has facilities including a swimming pool, a playground, a golf course, tennis courts, a restaurant, a campground, and a marina.

  • Very good place for families and anyone. There was a lot to do but the pool was closed when we went but still stuff to do. People were pretty friendly but not as friendly as most parks. Four different campgrounds to camp at. We were in A campground but we walked all but C campground. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. The Bay was all around so there was a lot to do there. I would go back if I go back that way.
  • Large recreational park! I don't have a boat or golf clubs, so I hike! The 4.3 mile Bay Point Loop trail is a canopy covered, flat scenic trail that weaves around small peninsulas with views of the Tennessee river. For a hot July day, the bugs weren't bad either. Surprising! Oh, lots of deer, too.
