I have always been a camper. My family went camping on our vacations, I was a Boy Scout, and now my wife and I camp out at least a couple of times a year. You can go on a campout without leaving the area at the Buell Lake County Park free of charge.

Genesee County Parks brings you the Great American Campout, Saturday from 5pm to 10am Sunday on the ballfield at the back of Buell Lake Park. Tent campers only for this free event. They'll even provide the ingredients for S'mores!

You are asked to pre-register by today and this is limited to the first 50 families.

Buell Lake County Park is located at 14098 Genesee Road, Clio. To register or for more info, go to www.geneseecountyparks.org or call (810) 736-7100 or 800-648-PARK

Camping is fun, take your family to the Great American Campout!
