Minnesota State Parks Have Openings Ready for Last-Minute Labor Day Campers
UNDATED - For all those last-minute Labor Day camping trip planners out there, good news. The Department of Natural Resources says there are plenty of state park campsites open around the state.
As of this week, six parks all over the state of Minnesota have at least 20 campsites available for the upcoming holiday weekend. Those are Minneopa State Park in Mankato, Minnesota Valley State Recreation area in Jordan, Myre-Big Island State Park in Albert Lea, Scenic State Park in Bigfork, Zippel Bay State Park in Williams, and Lake Bronson State Park.
A handful of other parks have a limited number of spots open as well.
According to the DNR, up to 30% of these campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Some of the best ways to get the spot you want is to call ahead and double check, get there by thursday if possible, and coordinate with friends or family to rent a group site, which are typically more available.
For more information on sites, or to make a reservation, call 866-85-PARKS or visit the DNR's website.
