Enjoy the stunning sunrise. The breathtaking glow of the lake awaits you. Located on the eastern shore of Lake Huron in Michigan’s thumb, Harbor Beach is surrounded by farmland and woods. The area offers an outdoor lover’s paradise with unlimited opportunities for boating, sailing, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, water skiing, vacation, and fun family recreation opportunities throughout the whole year.
Harbor View Trail, a bicycle/pedestrian walking path, connects the campground, marina, parks, beach, and the community’s business district. The world’s largest freshwater man-made harbor provides great fishing opportunities from aboard a boat, or from the break wall. The Judge James H. Lincoln Memorial Park is an access site for the new Tip of the Thumb Heritage Water Trail, a 90 mile trail along Lake Huron’s coast line.
