LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- In many cases, you can take a look at a hotel room before booking it. So why not a campsite?

Beginning Nov. 3, people who use the Michigan Department of Natural Resources' online system will be able to see photos of campsites at state parks before reserving them.

The DNR's Christa Sturtevant-Good says the system already provides a written description of campsites. The upgraded version will include at least one picture of each site.

The photos will show the location of the fire pit, electrical box and other features.

The new service is part of a switch to a different provider for the park system's central reservation system. Changes in the system will be phased in late this month and early in November.
