New Mich. Bill Targets Frivolous Campground Lawsuits

March 3, 2022

House Bill 5862 would provide an owner or employee of a private campground immunity from civil liability for physical harm or property damage resulting from an inherent risk of camping. The bill details examples of inherent risks, such as features of the natural world, lack of lighting, weather, campfires, wildlife, other visitors’ actions, fireworks not authorized by the campground, and use of playground or pool equipment. A campground would be required to post signage at any registration area stating that the campground is not liable for inherent risks of camping, with listed examples. WCM
