Camping Reservations Up So Far In 2014

gfpgfpgfpimagesThe Visitor Services Supervisor with the G F & P’s Parks and Recreation Division says camping reservations are up so far this year at state parks and recreation areas. Lynn Spomer (SPOH-mur) says reservations for camping spots for the Memorial Day weekend booked quickly and many locations are filled to capacity for the upcoming holiday.

Spomer says trends have been showing that more campers are making reservations early-especially at popular locations like Lewis and Clark and Farm Island Recreation Areas. She says many people are extending their outdoors time-coming to camp earlier in the week and staying longer. South Dakota has 4,300 campsites in its parks and recreation areas and Spomer says that seems to be a manageable number right now.
