Minnesota state parks campsite reservation website open again

ST. PAUL

Reservations can be made today and this weekend for campsites and cabins in state parks for arrival dates through May 22.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and private vendor US eDirect relaunched the system Thursday after a crash March 1.

It worked Thursday. Traffic was light, with only 125 reservations made by 3 p.m., and no major problems surfaced. Officials expressed confidence that the gradual rollout to handle a backlog of reservations would be a success.

Reservations can be made online at http://mndnr.gov/reservations or by calling (866) 857-2757.
