Fees Lowered For Michigan State Forest Campgrounds

LANSING (WWJ/AP) – The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is lowering fees at state forest campgrounds.

DNR Director Rodney Stokes announced the rollbacks this week during a meeting of the Natural Resources Commission. He said s the changes will align fees for state forest campgrounds more closely with those at state parks and recreation areas with similar features.

The per-night charge at most state forest campgrounds will be $13, down from $15 previously.

The rate will be reduced from $20 to $17 for equestrian state forest campgrounds, those associated with ORV trails, and the semi-modern Houghton Lake state forest campground.

Michigan has about 270 state forest campsites in 11 counties.

Users also must purchase a Recreation Passport for their vehicles, which is required at all state parks, recreation areas, and state-administered boating access fee sites.
