AVAILABLE FROM PARKS AND RECREATION BUREAU
LANSING--Individuals or organizations holding fishing

participating in the tournament. A $10 fee will be charged
for the first 15 boats, $20 for 16 to 30 boats, $30 for 31
to 45 boats and $10 for each additional 15 boats thereafter.
To request a land use permit from the DNR Parks and
Recreation Bureau, call 517-373-9900 with the name of the
boat launch or access site, and the county where it is
located. Parks and Recreation staff will be happy to connect
you to the proper state park or field office to facilitate
your permit purchase.
