Michigan Township Accepting Site Plans For Future Campground

Share this article

Michigan’s Fort Gratiot Township is in the beginning stages of building a campground, a report said. The township is now accepting plans for the site on Parker Road.

Fort Gratiot Community Development Coordinator Sharon Wilton said there are no plans for the campground as of yet. However, the water infrastructure built within the area could be beneficial for future development, and the campground could provide people with another option of staying within the township.

“It would make us a destination,” she said.

In late September, Michigan Legislature approved funds for three projects within Sanilac and St. Clair counties. The state budget included giving $50,000 to the Fort Gratiot campground to install an additional electrical and water infrastructure.

The infrastructure will support new campsites for RVs and campers. At the same time, the rise in tourism would aid small-scale businesses within the area, according to a Michigan House Republicans press release.

Wilton stated that the $50,000 would not cover the total project cost but would help if any additional project funds were approved.

She could not provide an estimate of the time when there could be activities on Parker Road because the plan has to be approved by the township’s planning commission and then get other approvals.

She noted that campgrounds in the county are always full, and a Fort Gratiot campground could help. There are numerous baseball tournaments in the region, and families usually look for a camping spot. The idea would attract many more people to the township to go to local businesses.

“It would help enhance our retail revenues in the township,” Wilton added.

Fort Gratiot Business Association treasurer Wing Thiele inferred that the camping area could be fantastic for Fort Gratiot residents and the county.

Fort Gratiot Township may be reached at (810) 385-4489.
