PENTWATER, Mich. — Campers making reservations at state parks are realizing it now costs more, according to WZZM.
New camping rates went into effect January 1, WZZM noted.
WZZM reported, the state’s reservation systems allows campers to book sites at this and other state park campgrounds six months in advance, so most prime dates in July are already booked, according to Charles Mears State Park Unit Supervisor Manny Valdez.
Daily rates at the state’s campgrounds have increased, from $1 at out-of-the-way parks to $4 at the state’s most popular. The increase could result in a $2 million revenue increase for the DNR, according to WZZM.
