Activities and Amenities
ATTENTION: The Black River Harbor Recreation Area will be under construction for the 2015 season. We are installing a new water and waste water system to service the campground, day-use picnic area, pavilion, and docks. The Pavilion will be closed for the summer due to the renovations to the water and waste water systems in the building. There will be no potable water or flush toilet facilities at this site. The day-use picnic area and docks will be open for the summer. A vault toilet is located near the suspension bridge. Thanks you for your patience during the renovations to our facilities. These new systems will allow us to once again have potable water at the Harbor and have a reliable waste water system. Please continue to visit Black River Harbor throughout the summer and enjoy your visit to the Ottawa National Forest.
