(UNDATED) - Those looking to celebrate Independence Day week in the great outdoors can still find some available campsites, cabins and shelters at several DNR properties.

Because July 4 is a holiday, a three-night minimum is required for campsites (July 4, 5 and 6).

Visit Camp.IN.Gov or call 1-866-6CAMPIN (1-866-622-6746) to make your reservation.

If you're looking for a road trip, but not sure where to go, find property maps and facility information at StateParks.IN.gov. Many new features are ready to enhance your experience no matter when or where you visit.

If you can't fit camping into your July 4 plans, don't miss out on Labor Day or any other time this summer. Cabins and campsites are still available for many weekends, including Labor Day weekend, but will go quickly.

Campers must follow DNR's rule on firewood. In-state visitors to state parks, state reservoirs, state forests and state fish & wildlife areas can bring firewood from home as long as the bark has been removed.

Guests may also bring firewood onto properties if it's: (1) kiln-dried scrap lumber, or (2) purchased outside the property and bears either a USDA compliance stamp or a state compliance stamp, or (3) purchased from the property camp store or on-site firewood vendor and has a state compliance stamp.

Visitors cannot bring firewood from out-of-state.
