new look for state park and harbor reservation website
As we prepare for the 2019 centennial celebration, we are excited to share the DNR's updated online reservations website for Michigan state parks and harbors at

The website has a new look and feel, simpler navigation, a more mobile-friendly design, and colors that better reflect those you see on the DNR website and many of our other materials.

Much of the functionality that customers have come to know was carried over. Campers can still search for campsites and harbor slips from a map, list or calendar display and view photos of campsites located in each campground.
