Many roadside parks operated by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) in the Upper Peninsula are scheduled to open April 24. 

The following roadside parks will remain closed until later this spring due to weather conditions and maintenance issues:

  • Esrey Roadside Park on M-26 in Keweenaw County
  • Hebard Roadside Park on M-26 in Keweenaw County
  • Snow Gauge Roadside Park on M-26 in Keweenaw County
  • Cunard Roadside Park on US-2 in Menominee County
  • Kiva Roadside Park on US-41 in Alger County
  • Flowing Well Roadside Park on M-117 in Luce County
  • All roadside parks in Mackinac County

MDOT maintains 32 roadside parks in the U.P. They usually close in late October and reopen in mid- to late April. While many parks will be open, motorists should not expect drinking water to be turned on until early May, after annual testing and treatment of the park water systems is completed.
