The Department of Natural Resources announced today that four state forest campgrounds will not be open for use due to inoperable water wells.

The sites impacted are: North Gemini State Forest Campground and South Gemini State Forest Campground in Schoolcraft County; Garey Lake Trail Camp in Benzie County; and Pigeon River Bridge State Forest Campground in Otsego County.

County health departments require a potable water source for every 25 campsites and the impacted campgrounds are serviced by a single well. DNR staff is currently working on repairing or installing new wells at these locations. Future announcements will be made when these campgrounds may be reopened.
