Campers will have fewer options for sites from now on, after the Department of Natural Resources announces the closure of twenty state forest campgrounds. The DNR is closing the campgrounds to help save $75,000 from its budget. The camps affected will close Monday, July 9th.
Camps were chosen from across Michigan. Affected camps are in Alpena, Antrim, Cheboygan, Chippewa, Crawford, Luce, Marquette, Oscoda, Otsego, Schoolcraft, Grand Traverse, and Wexford Counties. The camps were chosen based on several factors focusing on revenue generated from each camp. DNR officials say closing the twenty camps will save money for the program.
The remaining 118 state forest campgrounds will remain open all season. For a complete list of the closed campgrounds, click here.
