The Michigan DNR announced nearly two dozen concessionaire opportunities at Michigan State Parks. They are currently looking for companies and entrepreneurs to provide boat rentals, bike rentals, camp stores, and food trucks.

Aside from these, DNR is also open to new concession ideas for the state parks.

A new map tool is available at the DNR’s concessions bidding information website for potential partners to see the locations of concessions already operating in a particular state park, and to find where they want to fit their business within the state park.
