Are you a Michigan library card holder?  Did you know that as of May 24th, you can now access hundreds of Michigan’s state parks, historic sites, recreation areas and campgrounds for either free or discounted admission?  You can even use it to visit any of the Seven National Park venues in the state!

This year, in celebration of the program's 10th anniversary, 17 more venues have been added to the program including the Marquette Maritime Museum (Marquette), Michigan's Military and Space Heroes Museum (Frankenmuth), Outdoor Discovery Center Macatawa Greenway (Holland), and more!

If you want to take advantage of this, just print a free one-day pass, which you can do either at your local library or at home. Then use the pass at any of the 102 state parks or 138 campgrounds around the state. It’s all a part of the Michigan Activity Pass Program, which you can get more info and details on at
