Looking for a Fourth of July camping experience with a little less noise? Check out Fireworks-Free Fourth of July for veterans, pet owners and other visitors looking for a quieter holiday this year.
Several Michigan state parks and recreation areas that are situated farther away from traditional community firework displays will participate July 1-4.
The Michigan DNR and the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency worked together, for the third straight year to bring this opportunity to the public. It's not too early to book your favorite spot either, since camping reservations can be made up to six months in advance.
