Michigan State Parks Announces Fall Harvest Festival Camping Dates for 2023

Michigan state park campers are gearing up for the beloved fall harvest festivals, set to kick off on September 15.

While not all of the parks’ festival dates have been announced yet, some are already set for September and October weekends. 

Campers can start booking their campsites six months in advance for stays up to 15 days. 

Therefore, many campers have already locked up their reservations for the harvest festivals.

This year, Fort Custer Recreation Area in Augusta will not have a harvest festival because the park will close on September 11 for improvement projects.

Similarly, Bay City State Park in Bay City will not have its normal Fall Harvest events due to renovations, but instead will host a Trunk-or-Treat in conjunction with its Mother Nature Trail event on October 7 in the day use parking lot. Participants are asked to decorate their vehicles.

Michigan state park fall harvest festivals are typically open to registered campers only. To make reservations, visit MiDNRReservations.com or call 1-800-447-2757.
