Welcome to Harbor Beach
Enjoy the stunning sunrise over Lake Huron. 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, camping, and fun family recreation opportunity throughout the whole year. A bicycle/pedestrian walking path connects the camp ground, marina, parks, beach, and the community's business district. The world's greatest man-made harbor provides great fishing opportunities from aboard a boat, or from the break wall. Trescott 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.
