The DNR has the following opportunities available for operating concessions in several Michigan state parks and other destinations. Concessionaires provide goods and/or services and have the ability to enter into a contract for up to seven years. The expectation of the DNR is that concessionaires would have prior business experience and adequate working capital to fund the concession. We will make arrangements to visit the concession with interested bidders.
