Old Orchard Campground Calendar


List of Important Dates


We have had inquiries about our trade date. As the park has done in the past, (usually in March, but because of the delayed opening, now our seasonal trade date is on June 22nd, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.)

How it works is our current seasonal campers get the first opportunity to trade the spot they currently have for an available spot that was not picked during the lottery that we had last September. AFTER the seasonal trade drawing is complete, then the public will have an opportunity to get in a drawing to pick any remaining available seasonal sites.

This does not change our target opening date for seasonal’s who do not want to trade as they may come in and set up as normal. This is the date the park will open to the public. (as long as nothing changes with any updated or new Executive Orders) Gates will open at 8:00 a.m.

For questions and information please email us at:oldorchardpark@oscodatownshipmi.govor call during regular business hours: 989-739-7814
