This initiative, which began as a partnership between Farmington Hills Parks & Recreation and Oakland County Parks in 2007, is gaining momentum and spreading like wildfire.
We encourage everyone, whether you’ve camped before or not, to spend the night outdoors in your designated community park or in your own backyard. Learn everything about camping at a Great Oakland County Campout event in your community this summer.
Great Oakland County Campouts Don't let your community miss the boat. If your community isn't listed here, contact your local Parks & Recreation Department or Oakland County Parks to start a campout near you.
