After a two year hiatus, we’re pleased to announce that we are once again hosting the Michigan Buscraft Spring Gathering!
Join us at Lumberman’s Monument Visitors Center in Oscoda on May 6-8 for a chance to meet up with fellow bushcrafters, campers, and outdoor enthusiasts. On Saturday, May 7th, there will be a full day of presentations by the MI Bushcraft volunteer team.
The Gathering and presentations are free to attend at any point during the day. If you’d like to camp, AuSable River campsites can be reserved at recreation.gov or in-person at Lumberman’s Monument that weekend. Dispersed camping in the national forest is another option, and there are hotels and amenities in nearby Oscoda.
PLEASE NOTE: Monument Campground is closed to the public until May 30th and per the USFS only event volunteers will be permitted to stay overnight on the actual grounds during the event.
