DNR accepting Memorial Day weekend camping reservations

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) - The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is now accepting applications for Memorial Day weekend state park campsite reservations.

“Campers can make reservations for sites three months ahead of their first night stay and we had a flurry of reservations when campers began getting their sites for a two-week stay that includes the Memorial Day weekend,” Todd Coffelt, chief of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources State Parks Bureau, said in a written statement.

The DNR says most parks have nonelectric sites available for the Memorial Day Weekend and reminds campers that not every campsite is available on the reservation system. Parks keep between 25 and 50 percent of their electric and nonelectric sites available for walk up camping.

Information and a link to the reservation system is available online at www.iowadnr.gov.
