There are still opportunities to reserve a campsite at a Minnesota state park this Memorial Holiday weekend, but the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges people to make that reservation soon.

“Memorial weekend traditionally is one of the biggest camping weekends in Minnesota state parks,” said Courtland Nelson, director of the DNR Division of Parks and Recreation.

Reservations at many parks already are full for Friday and Saturday night, he added, but are still available at a number of Minnesota state parks in the northwest (Red River State Recreation Area, Lake Bronson, Zippel Bay, Hayes Lake and Old Mill) and parks in other areas of the state (Lake Bemidji in Bemidji, Scenic in Bigfork, Schoolcraft in Deer River and Lake Shetek in Currie).
