DNR Conservation Officers Patrolling Tip Up Town on Snowmobiles

Posted: Updated:

One Northern Michigan town will double in size in just one weekend. Tip Up Town USA Kicked off its 64th year in Houghton Lake today.

Tip Up Town's festival is located partially on Houghton Lake itself and on land, which means the DNR is stepping up to make sure everyone stays safe no matter where they are.

They say the weather is perfect this year and there is plenty of ice on the lake for snowmobilers to enjoy a nice ride.

The DNR will also be keeping an eye on ice fisherman to make sure everyone has a license and is following the law.
