The Mouth of the Two Hearted River State Forest Campground # 2, located in the Upper Peninsula’s Luce County, has reopened. The campground was previously closed due to damage caused by the May Duck Lake Fire.
“Department of Natural Resources’ Forest Resources Division and Parks and Recreation Division staff have worked diligently since the Duck Lake Fire to get the popular campground reopened for safe public use,” said Ron Olson, chief of the DNR Parks and Recreation Division. Most of this work centered on removing damaged trees and brush in and around the campground.
Culhane and Pike Lake State Forest Campgrounds remain closed at this time. Bodi Lake, Reed, and Green Bridge are alternate State Forest Campgrounds in the area that were not damaged by the Duck Lake Fire and remain open for public use.
The Recreation Passport is an easy, affordable way for residents to enjoy and support outdoor recreation opportunities in Michigan. By checking “YES” for the $10 Recreation Passport ($5 for motorcycles) when renewing a license plate through the Secretary of State (by mail, kiosk, online at www.expresssos.com or at branch offices), Michigan motorists get access to state parks, recreation areas, state forest campgrounds, non-motorized state trailhead parking and state boat launches. In addition, Recreation Passport holders can experience real savings at businesses and retailers that participate in the Passport Perks discount program. The Recreation Passport is valid until the next license plate renewal date. Nonresidents can purchase the Recreation Passport ($29 annual; $8 daily) at any state park or recreation area or through the Michigan e-Store at www.michigan.gov/estore.
