Michigan approved camping at the St. Clair Boat Harbor, but campsites won’t be available until next year, the Times Herald of Port Huron reported.

St. Clair Mayor Bill Cedar said it would be up to city administrators to determine when to bid out the project. Superintendent Mike Booth did not return emails seeking comment.

The idea of having nine campsites at the St. Clair Boat Harbor has been in the works for about six months.

Officials have estimated the project will cost $30,000, with half coming from a grant from the Community Foundation of St. Clair County and the rest being covered by the harbor’s revenues.

The camping spots will have electricity and water.

The proposed area would be south of the volleyball courts and horseshoe pits at the harbor.

Harbormaster Stephanie McCartney said, “I think it’s going to bring more people in, tourists as well as boaters.”
