A new campsite reservation policy beginning Wednesday will give more campers the chance to get a site at Michigan state parks, the Department of Natural Resources said.

Under the new structure, campers who cancel or modify a camping reservation will be charged a $10 fee, as well as a fee dependent on how long the reservation was held.

The fee will not apply to nights added to a reservation, and campsites can still be reserved up to six months in advance.

  • Reservations held up to two months:
    10 percent of the nightly rate for each modified/canceled camp night.
  • Reservations held up to three months:
    15 percent of the nightly rate for each modified/canceled camp night. 
  • Reservations held between three and four months:
    20 percent of the nightly rate for each modified/canceled camp night.
  • Reservations held between four and five months:
    30 percent of the nightly rate for each modified/canceled camp night.
  • Reservations held longer than five months:
    40 percent of the nightly rate for each modified/canceled camp night.
