Michigan State Parks are on sale 
Michigan has created a Recreation Passport program - $10 gets you access to 98 Michigan State Parks.

The state has instituted a Recreation Passport program, a $10 pass which allows participants unlimited access to all of Michigan's 98 parks and over 1,000 boat launches for the year. Residents will have the option of paying the extra money at the time they pay their annual vehicle registration fee.

Re: Michigan State Parks are on sale 
This is a great buy for residents of Michigan, and a great investment in State Parks even if you don't use them much. But it does nothing for non-residents. They will continue to pay the day use fee or the annual non-resident permit fee. Which, I believe, is $8.00/day or $29.00/annualy. That means $8.00/day for each day you stay in a campground, in addition to your camping fee. So if you're staying more than three days, you'll probably buy the annual pass. Just be aware that the pass is not transferable. If you visit in the summer in the family SUV and want to go back in the fall in your pickup, you'll have to buy another pass. If Michigan would issue the non-resident pass to the person instead of the vehicle, I'd have no complaint. And you Michigan residents, I encourage you to check YES for the Recreation Passport, even if you think you may not use it. It will be $10.00 well spent.
