BISMARCK (AP) - People interested in visiting state parks in North Dakota later this year can start making plans.
The Parks and Recreation Department says state parks begin taking reservations Tuesday. Parks open May 17, and officials say the 95-day reservation window enables visitors to ensure they have a campsite when they arrive.
Reservations can be made 24 hours a day with the exception of the first day, when they open at 7 a.m.
Campsite reservations may be made for May 17 through Sept. 2, except at Fort Ransom State Park, which will have reserved sites available through Sept. 29. Stays are limited to 14 consecutive days unless otherwise noted.
Visitors to Icelandic State Park will need to use a detour to reach the campground due to ongoing work at Lake Renwick Dam.
