Want to try camping, but don’t have the gear?  Not sure where to start?

The State of Michigan has a program just for you.

Getting supplies and gear for camping can be a big investment, especially if you’ve never done it before.

The State of Michigan and The North Face have teamed to provide gear and instruction for new campers.  For $20 anyone who hasn’t camped at a state park before will receive two nights of camping.

New campers will also receive instructions on how to pitch a tent, start a campfire, and other helpful tips to set up camp.

Gear will also be loaned to you from The North Face.  Gear includes:

  • tent
  • tarp
  • flashlight
  • lantern
  • camp stove
  • (4) hot dog /marshmallow cookers

Hoffmaster State Park and Muskegon State Park are among those participating.

View the full list of parks and learn how to sign up here.

Follow Matt Milhouse on Facebook and Twitter.  Listen weekdays, 10:00am – 3:00pm.
