If you are looking for a trashy night of loud music, yelling, drinking and camping, while being obnoxious until 4am night after night, then this is the spot for you. Otherwise steer clear of Harrison Park, as the already described trash-campers will ruin your stay....More

Daytripping Owen Sound looking for a good rest spot to picnic we happened upon Harrison Park, I would suggest bringing towels or blankets as being a bird sanctuary every sitting area covered in poop. Cover it, ignore it and enjoy the scenery.

From walking around the park sevea times, there do not appear to be any camping areas that have any real privacy. I definitely love the park but would probably choose a provincial park in the area to camp at.
