Litter Clean up at Harrison Bay State Park

We’re partnering with some amazing environmental organizations to host a Litter Clean Up at Harrison Bay State Park and Wolftever Creek Boat Ramp on October 28. Part of our mission is to steward the lands we recreate on and litter in our waterways is a big problem. We invite you to join us to clean up litter on land and water and help make a positive impact on our environment while enjoying the great outdoors.

Paddle boards will be available for those that want to get out on the water to assist with litter removal. We will also have boots on the ground for the litter on land. During the event, we will provide all the necessary equipment, including gloves, trash bags, and litter pickers.

By taking part in this Litter Clean Up, not only will you be contributing to the preservation of the park, but you’ll also be helping to protect the wildlife that calls it home. So, mark your calendars and don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a difference. Everyone is welcome to participate!

Harrison Bay State Park is a 1,200-acre park with approximately 40 miles of Chickamauga Lake shoreline and was originally developed as a Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) recreation area in the 1930s. Its name is derived from a large bay at the main channel of the Tennessee River that covers the old town of Harrison and the last Cherokee Campground. The parklands are historically significant because the Cherokee Campground consisted of three villages that were ruled by one of the last great Cherokee Chieftains. Harrison Bay became the first Tennessee State Park in 1937.
