Welcome to a New Season!!

February 16, 2020



Dear Shady Acres Annual Campers!

Welcome to another year at Harrison Shady Acres, formerly known as Downhour Shady Acres.


It has been our great pleasure to speak with each family and to learn more about your camping experiences at Shady Acres and how you came to be here! We look forward to meeting everyone face-to-face and demonstrating our commitment to ensuring that your stay continues to be just as comfortable, relaxing, and easy as it has and should be!


The new season will officially launch April 15, but the water won’t go on until the weather permits.  You should feel free to come on in whenever you get the urge! We are “planning” to be on-site by the last weekend in March.  To be sure your site is ready for your arrival, send us a quick note (text or email) a few days in advance.


Harrison Shady Acres will be operating in much the same manner as it has under Lori and Ulysees Downhour, ensuring a seamless transition.   And there have been a few changes we hope you’ll agree are added benefits:

  • Low annual increase!  Though the annual rate for newcomers will see a steeper increase to fall in line with other neighboring campgrounds, current annual campers will only experience a $100 increase and will always be dramatically lower, so long as your stay is continuous.

  • NEW Website www.harrisonshadyacres.com not only is a vehicle for new comers, but we have added a bunch of information on local activities.

  • FYI Campers Webpage! This is a secret place on the website, where you can easily locate WiFi, bathroom, and laundry room access codes.  Also, we’ll share newsworthy info just to keep you updated!  Here’s the Quick Link: https://www.harrisonshadyacres.com/fyicampers and you can also access the "FYI Campers!" link at the bottom of each webpage.  The password is "Easy".

  • Site Improvements. Bath and laundry rooms repainted, motion-sensor outdoor lighting, and enhanced WiFi will meet you upon your return!


Again, our goal is to provide you with the best experience possible so, please feel free to call or text us at 989/539-3111 anytime with any suggestions or issues and we are so looking forward to seeing you soon!


Kind Regards,


Don & Regina Bethea
