Midweek Holiday Means Camping Available At DNR Sites

Last updated on Thursday, July 5, 2012

(UNDATED) - This close to most Independence Days, getting a campsite at a DNR state park or reservoir is nearly futile.

This year is different.

The reason has little to do with the drought. It's mostly the calendar and the fact the 4th is on Wednesday. Most places are around 50 percent full, with some having only 30 percent of campsites reserved, and a few having 75-95 percent reserved.

The Wednesday holiday also means no minimum stay as required on most other holidays. Nature centers, found at most properties, are usually air conditioned and provide a nice respite from the heat while giving the kids or grandkids fun things to look at and do.

Find out what's available and make reservations at camp.IN.gov or call 1-866-6CAMPIN. More information is at StateParks.IN.gov.
