The Labor Day holiday is the last official summer bash for many people.


And according to the Department of Natural Resources, every reservable campsite in the state is booked.


But spokesperson Maia Turek says there are other options for those looking to get outdoors.


When you're thinking about Michigan, especially when you're talking about our state parks and some of our forest campgrounds, we have some absolutely stunning destinations. We've got views and vistas – many of them are attached to great recreational opportunities like kayaking, paddle-boarding, biking, fishing. And so it's that combination of so many great things that you can do that, it's easy to fill up a weekend that's fun and it's relatively inexpensive.”

For those still bent on camping, Turek adds many campers change their holiday plans last minute.


If not, there are first-come, first-served park options.
