The East Tawas City Park Campground is now open to all RV customers.  We have limited restroom and shower facilites available at this time.  Due to the coronavirus and for everyone's individual safety, we encourage everyone to use the restroom and shower facilities in their own RV's.  Please be sure to follow CDC guidelines for the prevention of the spread of coronavirus while in the campground and day parks.

As you all know, we are in the middle of a worldwide health pandemic unlike anything most of us have faced in our lifetimes. The City of East Tawas and the East Tawas City Park are committed to the health of our residents and visitors and are taking precautions to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus with guidance from state and county health officials.

While we understand these measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 may cause some frustrations, we are committed to keeping our employees and the public safe while still delivering essential services. We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation in consultation with health officials to determine if further changes to operations are needed.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time.
