Harrison is one of Canada's best beaches!
Harrison Hot Springs was recently voted #9 in TripAdvisor's 2011 Traveler's Choice Top 10 Beaches in Canada.
Did you know that Harrison's beautiful sandy beach is man made? In the early 1960's local resident Fred Hardy, assisted by Dan Power, assembled a dredge out of second-hand parts in order to pump sand from the bottom of Harrison Lake up onto it's south shore. After running the dredge 24 hours a day for two years, 700,000 yards of lakebed sand was successfully repurposed as sandy waterfront beach.
