Not every DNR office has them. I stopped at Brighton State Park to check with them. They said I should apply online, and wait the two weeks to get it. THey also said I could get one in Baldwin. I ended up contacting via phone (had to get number on my own...DNR did not provide it for me).
Baldwin said they did not have it, and I should get it from the Flat River Game area in Belding.
I made the trip to Belding to pick it up. In all the rain and wind, it was pretty useless at the campsite. It als said to leave it in the area when we leave. I did not. I did not want my name and contact information left on "litter" as I leave the woods.
If I remember right they had to be filled out in pencil and left. (How stupid is that?) I never left mine because of the personal info that is on them. Call your local Fire Field Office. They always had the placards while the local regular DNR offices never did.
Where are you going? The local FFO is the best. :fish:
Thanks for the responses. My hunting partner called and has a place we can pick them up on the way. Now I can only hope they are open. If not then I will be taking my chances and won't have one. It is just a registration right? Is there a fee for camping on open state forest lands?
