Six county parks officially open for camping after many off-season improvements.
The Huron County Parks system of six overnight campgrounds announced their official opening on May 1st, offering campers a wide range of locations and amenities to fit virtually every need. The Parks are situated in Michigan’s beautiful and historic Thumb Area, offering camping, hiking, boating, fishing and a variety of activities for the whole family.
Campgrounds include Caseville County Park, Lighthouse County Park, Oak Beach County Park, Sebewaing County Park, Stafford County Park, Wagener County Park, and three day use facilities to enjoy as well. All parks will open their doors May 1, 2013 with over 250 campers set to arrive.
During the off-season, the Huron County Road Commission began several significant improvements to the Huron County Parks website, which now offers a custom-programmed website, allowing campers to check availability and book campsites from the comfort of their own homes. Campers can search, book, and pay for campsites in just a few minutes.
“The new website and online booking system have helped streamline the reservation process for both campers and ourselves,” said Neal Hentschl, Road Commission Manager. “Not only were we able to accommodate many more campers this year, but the entire process for booking and confirming reservations is now much more efficient, especially for our busiest weekends, such as those surrounding 4th of July and the Cheeseburger Festival in Caseville.”
In addition to an online booking feature, the Huron County Parks website (www.huroncountyparks.com) offers valuable resources including video tours, special event information and news from the parks. “In the coming months we will be offering even more services to our campers via our website, including special offers from local businesses, discounts on future camping, information on special events, contests, photo galleries, and much more,” Hentschl explains.
Huron County Parks urges campers to book early for their stay at the parks. Campsites may still be available and the various campgrounds offer everything from cabin rentals, lake view, full hookup sites, to rustic camping and more.
