Don’t Move Firewood! Help Protect our Michigan State Parks and Campgrounds!:

Invasive insects and diseases have killed MILLIONS OF TREES in Michigan–often after hitching a ride on firewood. Please don’t transport firewood! At most campgrounds, it can be purchased on the premises or from nearby vendors who sell USDA-certified firewood. If certified firewood is not available, purchase your firewood as close as possible to where you will burn it. If you purchased wood and don’t use it all, remember–don’t transport it or take it home with you.


Advance camping reservations can be made up to six months in advance of a customer’s planned arrival date for both campsites and harbor slips. Advance reservation for overnight lodging or day-use shelters can be made up to one year in advance. Reservations can be made 24/7 by visiting or Mon-Fri: 8am–8pm, or Sat-Sun: 9am–5pm by calling 1-800-44PARKS (1-800-447-2757).
