Camping in Ferndale, register now for July 16-17 event

(Crystal A. Proxmire, 7/7/2011)

Camping is fun. But for many families, time, money, access to property and lack of experience prevent them from packing up and making a big excursion. That’s why the Ferndale Recreation Department has created The Ferndale Family Campout.

This annual “staycation” gives Ferndale families the chance to pitch a tent in Martin Road Park and enjoy the great outdoors with dozens of other friends and neighbors.

The Ferndale Family Campout runs from July 16 to 17 and costs $25 per campsite.  Campers register for a site through the Kulick Community Center, please call (248)544-6767 for more information or visit us at

Campsite registration includes: 1 campsite, information packet, wristbands for registered campers, map of Martin Rd. Park and special giveaways. If the weather is bad, campers will be moved inside to the Ferndale Activities Center, where the fun will continue.  Each campsite is 20 x 20 square feet with two tents allowed per site.  There is not electricity provided.  Campers may use camp stoves with propane or kerosene.  Bonfire and charcoal cooking is only to be done in supervised community bonfire and/or grilling locations.


No alcoholic beverages or animals allowed.
