For the second year in a row, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has declared July as "Michigan Camping & Recreation Vehicle Month."
Camping is a key contributor to the state's $17 billion tourism industry. The governor's declaration supports the economic and recreational contributions that the camping industry provides to Michigan's overall tourism, as well as promoting camping as an inexpensive and family-friendly recreation option year-round in our state.
Both Michiganders and visitors alike take advantage of the state's array of sun, freshwater coastline, 19 million acres of woodlands, soft breezes and fresh air, where the temperate climate allows for great camping and outdoor recreation–making it the ultimate Pure Michigan experience.
