Popular gay campground targeted with anti-gay graffiti


LGBTQ Nation

A popular gay campground in Saugatuck, MI was vandalized with anti-gay graffiti this past weekend.

A worker who lives across the street from the Campit Outdoor Resort discovered the graffiti on Saturday morning, waking up to find a swastika and some anti-gay remarks had been painted on the fence.

The Allegan County Sheriff’s Department says it’s taking the act of vandalism seriously, but it’s not being considered a hate crime.

Saugatuck is a short drive from Chicago and very popular with the LGBTQ community. The site has been a camp for 50 years and a known gay and lesbian resort for 40 years. It has 165 sites for campers, RVs and tents, two one-bedroom cabins, 16 one-room sleeper log cabins and a five-bedroom bed and breakfast and vintage travel trailer rentals.
