Harrison... Your Adventure Starts Here!
Founded in 1891 as a rail and timber town, the City of Harrison is close to the junction of US-127 and M-61 in Michigan.
Said to have been named after U.S. President William Henry Harrison, the city boasts a population of 2,114 (2010 census). Harrison is home to many beautiful sights, and is bordered along its eastern side by all-sports Budd Lake. In fact, Harrison is within 20 minutes of 20 different lakes! This makes it a destination that is great for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.
