"Non-resident? Go Away!!!" Proposed new Michigan State Park tag line
Wow are Michigan state park user fees every unfriendly towards traveling Class As towing toads!!! We had read on forums to expect an $8 PER DAY user fee on top of the $21-30 camping fee but to charge another $6 PER DAY for a toad was a bit much.
We are travelling up the Michigan coast staying at a different state park each night and had read about the $8 per day park access fee charges on top of the camping fee, which is not all that clear on their web site, but were absolutely shocked when they charged us another fee for the toad. A fifth wheel with a trailer, one fee.... an RV with a toad 2 fees..... tell me how that makes sense.... and we never caught that on their website or in the forums. I'm even struggling with the fee not being a once per stay fee as opposed to daily(this is the way it was in Indiana). We paid $58 for what a resident would have paid $20 for.
Tourism friendly state??? NOT!!!
