The North Dakota State Parks online and phone center will begin taking reservations for the 2011 camping season beginning Feb. 15, allowing campsite reservations to be made 95 days prior to arrival.
State parks officially open May 20, and the 95-day reservation window allows visitors to make sure they have a campsite or cabin ready upon arrival. Reservations can be made 24 hours a day with the exception of the first day of the 95-day window, these reservations will be available beginning at 7 a.m. In 2011, campsite reservations may be made for May 20 through Sept. 5, except for Grahams Island State Park and Fort Ransom State Park. Stays at state parks are limited to 14 consecutive days.
Reserved sites at Fort Ransom State Park are available through Sept. 30.
The opening day of reservations for Grahams Island State Park campsite, cabin and group facilities is being postponed until May 1. Due to the rising water levels of Devils Lake (as forecast by the National Weather Service), there is potential for limited park access. For those already having made reservations at Grahams Island State Park, contact NDPRD headquarters at 701-328-5357 for questions.
Cabins, shelters, meeting halls and rooms may be made one year in advance. Reservations for both campsites and cabins can be made until noon the day prior to arrival. Reservations may be made either online at www.parkrec.nd.gov or by calling the toll-free reservation line, 800-807-4723.
