With the holidays around the corner, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced that – starting Dec. 20 – it will offer e-gift cards for sale. These new e-gift cards can be purchased online at www.midnrreservations.com and can be redeemed at any Michigan state park or state harbor, online or at the call center (800-44-PARKS).
E-gift cards can be purchased for any whole dollar amount after a $5 first-time minimum has been met, and the cards are reloadable.
DNR e-gift cards make a great gift for outdoor lovers, making it easy to give the gift of camping or a special day at a beautiful Lake Michigan state harbor.
“We’re excited to offer this new, customer-friendly feature just in time for the holiday season,” said Ron Olson, DNR Parks and Recreation Division chief. “Early next year, we look forward to expanding our gift card options to include the more traditional option of ‘real’ gift cards that people can carry in their wallets and take with them on the go.”
Over the last few years, the DNR has offered $25 gift certificates for sale in the e-store. The sale of these paper certificates will be discontinued in 2014. State parks and harbors will honor the redemption of already-purchased paper gift certificates at their facilities.
“We think all of the outdoor enthusiasts on your holiday list would definitely be excited to get the gift of the outdoors in their stockings Christmas morning,” said Olson.
