GW: This sounds like it could be a lot of fun!
If thoughts of camping conjure up warm childhood memories of summer, the Department of Natural Resources invites folks to visit P.J. Hoffmaster State Park’s vintage camper gathering and open house from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 9.
Fellow campers and visitors can walk the loops within the campground to see the vintage trailers and visit with Midwest district club members from the “Tin Can Tourists” and “Tear Jerkers” vintage camper organizations.
P.J. Hoffmaster State Park is located at 6585 Lake Harbor Road in Muskegon, Mich. Guests are welcome to join in the fun, reminisce, make a craft or play an “old-time” game. For details, call the park at 231-798-3711 or email Terri Creeden at email@example.com.
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.
