The Michigan Senate passed a bill Tuesday that will keep 23 state forest campgrounds slated for closure open through the end of the fiscal year, according to a report from WWTV, Cadillac.

The bill allows for transfers within the Department of Natural Resources budget to free up the money to keep the campgrounds open.

The DNR may offset the transfer by raising revenue through marking trees.

Legislators who fought for the bill say that the tourism industry of Michigan needs the campgrounds open.

    Having camped in our RV in some of the parks in the northern lower pennisula and the UP I would hate to see you close any of them. I think you will also find that as gas prices increase more people will use your beautiful parks instead of doing a driving vacation.
