Kenton, Mich., May 19, 2020 – Today, Kenton District Ranger Barbara Van Alstine announced the closure of the Kenton Ranger District Office for maintenance work.  Beginning June 1 through June 26, the Kenton District office will be closed to the public and all personnel to remove and replace flooring throughout the building. 

Work will be done by local contractors and includes removal of old flooring, preparation of floor surfaces for new epoxy flooring, and application of epoxy flooring throughout the building.  Due to the extent of work to be completed and the need for all furnishings to be removed from the building, personnel will not be on-sight during the work project and the office will be closed to the public.

For those individuals who need assistance during this period of time, you are being asked to call either the Watersmeet/Iron River District Office (906-358-4551) or the Ontonagon District Office (906-884-2085) for assistance.  You may also visit our website for general recreation information, ordering Forest Visitor Maps, or accessing Motor Vehicle Use Maps at:  

The District Office will be an active work site during this period of time, so visitors are encouraged not to try and access the parking lots or office, but call or visit our other offices for any needed assistance.  Thank you for your understanding and patience as we have this much needed maintenance work completed.
