Camping has been a growing hobby during the COVID pandemic and trying to get a spot at a Michigan State Park has been nearly impossible. One option has been to check on cancellations but that is a manual time consuming process. The state is now offering a new feature that solves that problem.
Here is the email that was recently published:
New “Notify Me” feature alerts you if camping opportunities open at state parks
Just in time for Labor Day holiday weekend, the new “Notify Me” feature on the Michigan State Park & Harbor Reservations website lets you sign up for an email notification when a site becomes available for selected dates.
It’s easy! If the campground, overnight lodging facility or shelter you’re looking for is full, click on the “Notify Me” button for the dates you’ve selected in your search.
Then, just follow the prompts and you’ll receive an email notification when a reservation opens up.
Please note, this feature is not currently available for harbors. For assistance with this feature, use the Live Chat option located at the bottom of MiDNRReservations.com under “Contact Us.”
Glad to see this feature for Michigan State Parks. We used this feature in California when trying to find sites, it worked well.
