State Parks Reinstate Recreation Passport Requirement

If you are planning a trip to a state park in Michigan, you are now going to need a passport again.

For the past three months, state parks have been free to enter because of the pandemic.

But starting Monday, the state is charging fees again.

Visitors can pay for day passes, or have year-long recreation passports on their licence plates. The passport allows you to visit more than 100 state parks and other recreation areas in Michigan.

They cost $12 when you renew your license plate or $17 at the park’s entrance.

Recreation passports are valid for one year or when your registration expires.

This change comes as state campgrounds are also slated to reopen on Monday.
