PIERRE - People wanting to camp in South Dakota state parks on Memorial Day weekend may begin making reservations for that holiday period at 7 a.m. CST on Feb. 22 for May 23 arrivals.
³Memorial Day weekend is very busy in all the parks," said state Division of Parks and Recreation Director Doug Hofer. "Campers should plan ahead to reserve their favorite camping spots."
A three-night stay is required during holiday weekends at all parks except Custer State Park. Reservations for campsites in Custer State Park and for lodges in all state parks and recreation areas can be made one year in advance.
Reservations can be made 24 hours a day by calling 1-800-710-2267 or by visiting www.campsd.com. Campsites become available at 7 a.m. Central Time on the first day of the 90-day window. There is a $7.70 per site non-refundable reservation fee, which does not apply to South Dakota residents.
