The state is planning to launch a pilot program this fall welcoming owners and  their pets to state parks.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources will launch the initiative in November, allowing select cabins to host up to two pets.

Maia Turek is with the Department of Natural Resources. She said national data helped push them towards starting the program.
