Michigan State Parks and Campgrounds to Expand Pet-Friendly Camping

Michigan has some beautiful state parks and camping options and beginning in November, those who camp with their pets will have some new options. The state will allow people who are camping with their pets to not only use the campsites but now five of the state parks will allow for pets to stay in their cabins and lodges.

Currently, leashed pets are allowed at the campsites. The five campsites that will be open to pets staying in the cabins or lodges are: Harrisville, Sleepy Hollow, Lime Island, Leelanau, and Cheboygan. Reservations are already being accepted for a few of the sites and all five are expected to be open by spring of 2018 to pets.

The idea for this program was motivated by a survey that reported more than 65% like to travel with their pets. As it is, the parks have seen people who camp with the RVs come with their pets, of all sorts. The parks have seen birds, lizards, and other pets aside from cats and dogs. The state is hoping for more people to camp with their pets now that they can stay at the cabins and lodges.

To make reservations visit: www.midnrreservations.com or call 800-44-PARKS (800-447-2757).

Remember: pets must be on a leash when walking outside and to clean up after your pet.
