The City of Au Gres will not be operating the Harbor of Refuge and Boating Access Site this year. The State of Michigan will be operating these facilities once again. A recreation passport sticker can be purchased at the time of renewing your license plates for $10 and allows access to all State of Michigan campgrounds and boat launches. If you did not send in with your license plate renewal, there will be envelopes on site to pay for this sticker and employees will still be working the grounds if you have any questions.
Reservations for the Harbor of Refuge can be made through the State Central Reservation System at 1-800-44-PARKS or Click here. Fees for the Au Gres State Dock are also set by the State of Michigan. Seasonal docks are available at the Harbor this year.
Amenities at the Harbor include bathrooms, showers, electric and water hook-ups, picnic tables, grills, gas pumpout and dog run. State docks are located on the Au Gres River at the US-23 bridge. This location is in the heart of Au Gres and within walking distance to restaurants, ice cream, shopping, campground, and laundromat.
