Michigan is opening up, and Michigan state parks will once again be collecting admission fees starting today (June 22) after three months without the feeds due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

The pass gets people into more than 100 state parks and recreation areas.

A recreation passport runs $12 when renewing a license plate registration with the secretary of state. If you head to a park without a recreation password, you can purchase one at park entrances for $17. The rate is less for motorcycles.

The recreation passport is good for one year or until the current vehicle registration expires.

State parks also open for camping, overnight lodging and day-use shelters today.
