NINE HARBORS HAVE SLIPS AVAILABLE FOR RESERVATION |
ON THE DNR WEB SITE
LANSING-- The Michigan Department of Natural Resources
(DNR), in coordination with the e-Michigan Office, today
announced an Internet site which allows boaters to reserve
Boaters who visit the DNR web site, www.michigandnr.com, and
click on the "Online Campground and Harbor Reservations"
link, can plan their trip by reserving slips along a route
of harbors throughout the Great Lakes.
The group of State-owned and Grant-in-Aid harbor facilities
available through this pilot program includes: Mackinac
Island, Mackinaw City, St.Ignace, Cheboygan City, Cheboygan
County, East Tawas, Lexington, Port Austin, and Presque Isle
harbors. The number of harbors participating with the new
reservation system is expected to grow in 2002.
In addition to Internet harbor reservations, a toll free
telephone number is also available for both campground and
harbor reservations by calling 800-44-PARKS. The call-in
harbor reservation service opened for business on Easter
Sunday, April 15th, and already has been used to book more
than 200 reservations.
The new Internet harbor slip reservation service is a great
addition to the e-commerce community of services being
offered by the State of Michigan. The new site can be found
by visiting the State's homepage at www.state.mi.us or the
DNR's homepage at www.michigandnr.com.
