Huron-Manistee forests waiving many user fees Saturday
CADILLAC, Mich. (AP) — Visitors to Michigan’s Huron-Manistee National Forests can use some of their most popular recreation sites for no charge Saturday.
The U.S. Forest Service is waiving fees in honor of National Get Outdoors Day.
The waiver applies to day-use sites. Among them are the Nurnberg Trailhead at Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area in Mason County; the Big M Mountain Bike Trail in Manistee County; the Hoist Lake Foot Travel Area in Alcona County; and Loda Lake National Wildflower Sanctuary in Newaygo County.
Also included are Rainbow Bend and other access sites on the Manistee Wild and Scenic River.
Fees are still being levied for camping and day use of 14 sites that are managed by the concessionaire American Land and Leisure. Other special fees such as watercraft permits remain in effect.
