Many opportunities still exist for those looking to camp the week of the Fourth of July, said Game, Fish and Parks officials. A large number of campsites are available for reservation for the weekends before and after July 4, as well as for the holiday in state park campgrounds across South Dakota.
"With the Fourth of July just around the corner, many campers have already made their reservations," said Doug Hofer, state parks director. "However, there are still many parks with campsites available, in addition to a number of first-come, first-serve campsites."
A current site availability listing is available online at www.CampSD.com. Reservations for the weekend can be made until 12 noon on Thursday, June 28 and July 5, through www.CampSD.com or by calling 1-800-710-CAMP (2267). All sites not reserved on Thursday, June 28 and July 5 become available on a first-come, first-served basis for Friday arrival.
