Harrison is a very friendly village. Everyone knows everyone and there is plenty of support within the community. I would describe residents of Harrison as the kind of people who would give the shirt off their backs! I love that they are so caring! The park in Harrison Crystal Lake Park is very well kept and clean! There is no mischief and it's a quiet town!

I rated my personal experience in this area as a four star rating because of how beautiful the general atmosphere really is in such a small town. Although there is not a lot of things to do around the town, there are many things to make up for it such as the local park or the great outdoors. At our local park activities can range from relaxing at the beach and enjoying the annual "Old Home Days" fair in the summer, to attending the annual ice fishing derby and enjoying some hot chocolate in the winter. Our town is slowly growing, both beautifully and economically; and although it's not the typical town with fast food places and high traffic areas, it is where I grew up and if I could I would live here again without a doubt.
As I said its a small community, and everyone is like family. I would choose to live no where else but with family. Is a great place to raise a family. I love to travel, but it is always nice to come home.
