    Type 2 being tent (known as hammock in this case). Type 5 being your luxury Winnebago. Electrical and sewage hook-ups. Of which there are none at DL.
    I reserved a type5 site because I thought there would be more space. There were only 3 type2 sites available verses 56 of the type5. I plan on getting there earlier in the day to possibly go around and maybe pick my site. I am not sure that is how it works there but I am sure going to try. I also want to set up some type of backpacking trip from these sites. Maybe a day trip of something????.

    Ill have to check... But I seem to remember that camping is allowed just about anywhere on state land. There are certain restrictions like how far from an established site you need to be... how far from roads, waterways etc.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    Opie, you have to have a permit and be at least 1 mile from any established campground.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Yup.... Had to brainstorm to remember what they called it... "dispersed camping."

    Here is the permit...

    http://www.michigan.gov/documents/PR4134pdf_22921_7.pdf

    Dispersed Camping

    You can camp anywhere on State Forest Property as long as:

    * the property is not posted "No Camping"
    * you are more than one mile from a designated State Forest Campground
    * you follow all State Land Rules

    You must also post a Camp Registration Card (PR 4134) at your campsite. To obtain a Camp Registration Card, contact your local DNR Office
    Not sure if the applies here... But it is specific in that it says "state forest" and not "state park."

    If my memory serves me correctly dispersed camping is only allowed in State Forests, not parks, so it would not apply a YS.
