Campers encouraged to reserve sites early for summer holiday plans
Utah State Parks and Recreation is preparing for a busy summer season. In fact, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Green River, Escalante, and Goblin Valley are already booked for Memorial Day Weekend.
Because state park reservation policy allows campers to reserve individual campsites up to 18 weeks prior to their date of departure from the park, reservation agents begin accepting reservations for the Fourth of July Weekend Thursday, March 15.
For reservations, call 1-800-322-3770 from outside the Salt Lake area or (801) 322-3770 from within Salt Lake.
"Savvy campers are booking early and reserving their perfect campsite," commented Emily Debois, reservation manager. "Due to the popularity of state park facilities, reservations are always recommended."
The Utah State Parks Reservation Center can also book group sites, pavilions, and boat slips. Agents may also recommend locations for golf tournaments, corporate outings, and family reunions.
Individual campsite reservations must be made at least two days in advance of arrival date. An $8 non-refundable reservation fee is charged for each site reserved. Group site reservations may be made up to 11 months in advance. A $10.25 non-refundable fee, along with a per/person fee, is charged for group sites and building rentals.
