Default ORV increases in 2014

https://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,...5565--,00.html

Not sure if this is a or not.

Cliff notes:

ORV license - $26.25
Trail permit - $10.00
Total - $36.25

You need a ORV license to get a trail permit. Plus if you head to Silver Lake or the Mounds, you'll need the additional $10 park pass.

In other words, price increased to $46.25 for 2014 offroading.

it was only a matter of time they increased the ORV stickers, since the snowmobile trail permits are 45 bucks per sled.

Depending on how often you do go, the average price of entry becomes cheaper and cheaper.
With a passport on your plate it becomes even more cost effective for camping in the State Parks too!

Again, depends on usage.

Worth every penny in my opinion.

I will always get the state park pass. If I bring my quad once, I better bring it 4x

I think separate ORV and Trail permits are stupid , but the price really isn't the issue to me,

a few years go I was buying state park seasonals at $25, plus $16.25 for the ORV's for 3-4 vehicles each year for silver lake.

We're only talking $5 more per year.

I'm not sure if you want us to cry you a big river, or if you're just trying to be informative?

Holy cow, It's going to cost the price of "one" nice dinner to wheel on our state land for an entire year.

If I have the state park pass on my plate, and the ORV and trail permit on my truck, can I wheel on Belle Isle?

I've been trying to figure this out . If you have a plated vehicle when do you need a ORV sticker ? I thought you only needed the ORV to run the routes last year this year do you need the ORV and trail permit ?

For Full size users (including side by sides) the following applies:
#1 - A vehicle with a SOS license plate, driving on ORV ROUTE exclusively does not need and ORV License or an ORV Trail permit. The one exception to that is Drummond Island, where some of the routes require 4x4 and thus do require the ORV License and Trail Permit.
#2 – Vehicles with a SOS license plate driving on ORV TRAIL or in any of the scramble areas (including Silver Lake Sand Dunes) requires both the ORV License and Trail Permit.
#3 – both the ORV License and Trail Permit need to be displayed on the rear of the vehicle just like the old ORV stickers.

Cut and paste from lpm606's report from yesterdays ORVAW meeting.

So no price increase in how many years? I guess the state should absorb all inflation costs.

I'm not here to debate the +/-'s of the increase. Just that the cost should not really be an issue. It costs more than that for a family of 4 to wheel one day at Windrock.

I don't understand the ORV License AND Trail Permit thing.

Is there any time you would only need one of them?

Where is the extra money going? I never fully understood where the initial $16.25 went.
