Storm Damage Temporarily Closes State Forest Campground and Trails
in Lake and Osceola Counties

Department of Natural Resources forest recreation managers today announced
that recent storm damage has caused the temporary closure of the Silver
Creek State Forest Campground in Lake County and several trails in Lake and
Osceola counties.

Silver Creek State Forest Campground is located 5.5 miles north of Luther in
Lake County. This campground, which adjoins the Pine River, has sustained
severe flooding. DNR crews are working to reopen this popular campground;
however, the water needs to recede to allow for restoration and repair work
to be completed. The Silver Creek hiking pathway that is adjacent to the
campground and follows along the Pine River also will remain closed until
further notice.

Canoeists using the Pine River should be aware that there are numerous log
jams upstream from Lincoln Bridge.

The other trails impacted by last weeks storm include the Evart Motorcycle
Trail, Little Manistee Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) Route and Little Manistee
Trail.

The Evart Motorcycle Trail is located three miles west of Evart. This cycle
trail is closed due to an excessive amount of downed trees blocking the
trail corridor. DNR crews are working to clear the trail. A reopening date
is unknown at this time.

The Little Manistee ORV Route and Little Manistee Trail are located west of
Luther and are closed due to flooding and hazardous conditions. DNR
officials will begin efforts to reopen these trails once the water recedes
and the status of the bridges can be assessed.

Questions concerning these closures may be directed to Todd Neiss, DNR
recreation specialist, at (231) 775-9727, ext. 6045. Information regarding
other camping, ORV riding or hiking opportunities in Lake and Osceola
counties may be found on the DNR Web site at
www.michigandnr.com/parksandtrails, or by calling the DNR Cadillac
Operations Service Center at (231) 775-9727, ext. 0 for the operator.

The DNR is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and
enjoyment of the state's natural resources for current and future
generations.
