The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds Belle Isle patrons that Belle Isle Park picnic shelter reservations will be taken in person on a first-come, first-served basis from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. March 24-26 at the casino building on Belle Isle, Detroit. Patrons can enter the park starting at 6 a.m. each day. The park is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.; overnight camping on the island is not permitted.
Each day will offer specific reservation opportunities for May through October:
Beginning April 15, 2014, all Belle Isle Park shelter reservations will be taken through the DNR-administered Central Reservation System (CRS). The CRS manages state park camping, lodging, shelter and harbor reservations. These reservations can be made up to a year in advance. Reservations through the CRS can be made online at www.midnrreservations.com or through the call center at 1-800-44-PARKS.
