New Reservation Policy for Michigan State Parks
Fri, 24 Nov 2017 16:08:05 EST
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has put in place a new policy regarding the cost of camping reservations at Michigan State Parks.
The new sliding modification and cancellation structure took effect November 1st.
Campers still can make reservations up to six months in advance. Under the old policy, the cost to cancel or modify a camping reservation is ten dollars ($10.00). The new structure still will include the ten dollar modification and cancellation fee, but also will include an additional incremental fee based on the length of time between the date the initial reservation was made and the planned arrival date.
DNR officials mentioned that, rather than holding onto several blocks of campsites at a campground, or in some cases multiple campgrounds, the new policy incentivizes campers to finalize their plans as soon as possible.
