Weather and improved economy may have boosted camping activity
While many have put their tents away and others are thinking about storing their RV's for the winter still others are taking advantage of Michigan's fall camping season. State officials say 2013 has been a good year for camping. State forest campground use was up from last year, and state park campers made a very strong showing.
