Forest Publications and Recreation Maps

We are in the process of updating our free, on-line maps to meet electronic accessibility requierments. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.  If a particular map has not yet been updated you can contact an office for a print version.



Recreation Publications and Maps

 Most publications are set to print landscape/11x17 (tabloid).


Adventure Planners

Adventure Planners are 28-page booklets that provide visitors with information on camping, hiking, biking, skiing, motorized trails and rivers across the Forests, along with general information on permits, motor vehicle use maps, gold panning, metal detecting and campfires.  Each planner contains a map that gives a general overview of where recreation sites are located across the Huron or Manistee Forests. These can be printed on 8.5x11 paper.
