W3048 Crawfish Road - Ixonia, WI: 920-474-7178


The main road into Harnischfeger Park is scheduled for reconstruction beginning in mid April.

During construction, slated to last 2-3 weeks, vehicle access to the main part of the park will not be available. Therefore campsites, clubhouse, shelters, canoes/kayaks will be unavailable for advance reservations. Until construction begins and the road is still open, we will accept short term drive in camping and shelter use on a 1st come – 1st served basis. Stay tuned to this website and the Parks Facebook Page as we will try to provide routine road status reports.

The northern park entrance at N650 Highview Rd (about ¼ mile north of the main entrance) by the red barn and house is open for parking access for day use activities (ie, trails use) and will be unaffected by the road construction.
