Michigan State Park Reservation System Getting Upgrades

from a news release of the Michigan DNR

The Michigan State Park reservation system will be closed down from March 7-14, but when it reopens the upgrades should make users happier. Both the call center in Iron River and the online reservation system will be shut down from 5 p.m., Saturday, March 7 until 9 a.m., Sunday, March 15, when both the call center and the online system will reopen for reservations. No camping or harbor reservations can be taken during this closure.

"We apologize to our users for the inconvenience this temporary closure may cause," said Ron Olson, chief of the DNR's Parks and Recreation Division. "However, the improvements will enhance the reservation system for our customers and is the result of input from our users."

Improvements will include a shopping cart system, and the ability to handle a larger number of calls.

"The upgrades provide a number of improvements that have been requested by our campers," Olson said. "It will allow online users to put a hold on a site while they input their information. The hold will expire after a few minutes in case they change their mind or get busy doing something else."
