Campground Update - Harrison Bay State Park
With no upgrades since 1982, the campgrounds of Chattanooga’s popular state park were overdue for updates. Some renovations were needed for age-related issues. Others were needed to accommodate increased traffic, changes such as the larger RVs now common at the park, and provide for year-round campground usage.
CTI was retained by the State to provide engineering services for the following major elements:
» Replace aged bathhouse with one that is winterized and ADA-compliant. Maintain rustic exterior to meet park requirements.
» Widen and lengthen parking pads to accommodate the longer RV’s.
» Construct retaining walls to minimize erosion around the parking pads.
» Provide more ADA-compatible campsites.
» Upgrade electrical system including modifications to transformers and circuitry as necessary.
» Provide WI-FI to all campsites.
» Upgrade main water line to accommodate future growth.
» Renovate water and electrical connection for each campsite.
» Add drainage culverts under campground roadway and rework ditches to provide positive drainage.
» Rework and repave campground roadway.
» Rework existing dump station and/or add new dump station.
» Provide sewer connection to several campsites.
» Provide bank stabilization to stop scour along lakeside campsites.
» Coordinate utility fees, connection points, existing locations, and any other requirements with local utility companies.
