The federal government says national parks would close. National parks in Michigan that would be affected by such an order likely include Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Keweenaw National Historical Park, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Isle Royale National Park.

An official with the Gerald R. Ford presidential library in Ann Arbor and museum in Grand Rapids said Thursday those facilities would close in the event of a federal government shutdown.
