PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — State parks this month will begin accepting camping reservations for Memorial Day weekend.
Reservations for the weekend of May 22 can be made starting at 7 a.m. Feb. 21. A three-night stay is required during holiday weekends at all parks except Custer State Park.
State Division of Parks and Recreation Director Doug Hofer says campers should plan ahead and reserve their favorite camping spots as Memorial Day weekend is very busy in all the parks.
Arrangements for campsites can be made as many as 90 days before arrival, except at Custer State Park, which accepts reservations one year out. More than 40 parks offer camping reservations on the 90-day schedule.
Reservations can be made 24 hours a day online and by phone.
