Harrison Lake State Park in Fulton County is one of 10 state parks across Ohio to receive Service Excellence Awards from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

The 142-acre park received high marks for its campground, which offers yurts - canvas structures on wooden platforms - for rent. It has nearly 200 regular campsites.
