Proposed Fee Changes for Huron-Manistee National Forest Sites and Services


The US Forest Service is considering implementing fee adjustments for various sites and services within the Huron-Manistee National Forest in Michigan. These proposed changes aim to enhance visitor experiences, support ongoing operations, and ensure the long-term sustainability of the forest's recreational opportunities.

Camping Fees

Camping fees at developed campgrounds would increase according to the following schedule:

  • Single-family campsites: $30 per night (from $20)
  • Double-family campsites: $40 per night (from $30)
  • Group campsites: $80 per night (from $60)

These increased fees would bring the forest in line with comparable camping rates in the region.

Day-Use Fees

Day-use fees for designated areas, such as picnic grounds and swimming beaches, would also be adjusted:

  • Day-use sites: $10 per vehicle (from $5)
  • Boat launch fee: $5 per launch (new fee)

Other Fees

Additional fees are proposed for specific activities and services:

  • Cabin rentals: $100 per night (from $80)
  • Yurt rentals: $75 per night (from $60)
  • Off-highway vehicle trails: $30 annual pass (new fee)

Rationale for Fee Adjustments

The Forest Service explains that these proposed fee changes are necessary to address several factors:

  • The current fees are insufficient to cover the actual costs of operating and maintaining campgrounds and other facilities.
  • The increased revenue would allow for improvements to infrastructure, such as upgraded restrooms, showers, and water systems.
  • The additional funding would support enhanced visitor services, including programs and events, and ensure the sustainability of the forest's recreational resources.

Public Comment Period

The Forest Service is seeking public input on these proposed fee adjustments. Comments can be submitted online at the following website:
