Skeleton staff members in a spooky good mood.

Due to COVID-19 operational procedures and protocols designed to protect the health and safety of visitors, volunteers, and staff, the DNR has scaled back some parts of our popular harvest festivals. Here’s what you need to know:

Many of your favorite fall activities will still be part of this year's festivities. To do this safely, please maintain proper social distancing (at least 6 feet from people outside your household) and make sure everyone keeps a face covering handy for crowded outdoor settings. The activities in store this year include:

  • Site decorating - Go all out with your site decorations so other campers can enjoy the sights as they stroll through. Just remember we’re discouraging interactive displays that invite guests onto your campsite.
  • Scavenger hunt - Info available at the campground office.
  • Coloring sheets - Supplies available at the campground office.

Please Note: These activities are purely for fun and there will not be a contest or prizes associated this year.

Though all other activities, such as trick-or-treating, hay rides, a spooky walk through the woods, pumpkin painting, face painting, kids crafts and the costume parade, aren’t a part of this year’s festivities, we can make sure the tradition continues! We hope you’ll be a part of it, and we look forward to welcoming you for some festive, fall fun. For more information, please call the park.

A Recreation Passport is required for vehicle entry into Michigan state parks. To make a camping reservation, visit or call 1-800-447-2757.

Please Note: Dates occasionally change and events may be canceled due to inclement weather and other reasons. Please call the park to confirm dates/times prior to your arrival.
