Michigan DNR raises vehicle entry fees


The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has announced regular Recreation Passport vehicle entry fee for residents will increase from $11 to $12 starting March 1st. This is the first Recreation Passport price increase since January 2013. All other resident Passport fees will stay the same, including those for motorcycles, mopeds and commercial vehicles. The Passport allows year-round access to more than 100 state parks and recreation areas, 140 state forest campgrounds, hundreds of miles of state trails, historic sites and hundreds of boating access sites. The change is due to a statutory provision to adjust the Recreation Passport fee based upon the Consumer Price Index as determined by the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
