Rain leads to early closure of 2 UP campgrounds

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Heavy rainfall forced campgrounds at two state parks in the Upper Peninsula to be shut down early.

The campground at Baraga State Park and the Union Bay Modern Campground at Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park closed for the season Wednesday, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources said. People who had reservations at Baraga will be reimbursed.

Union Bay would have normally remained open about another week and Baraga about two weeks more, but DNR officials said there was standing water or flooding at both sites.
