MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota State Park reservation system is closing for two months for an online makeover.
State Park officials warn people to make your reservations early if you plan to spend a weekend at a state park in 2012.
The reservation system will shut down on Dec. 27 and won’t reopen until Feb. 29. Parks director Courtland Nelson said it will create a short-term inconvenience, but that customers will like the new reservation system that should be fully operational March 1.
The site is being revamped to make it easier to plan an overnight stay. There will also interactive maps and show where to find available overnight lodging at a glance.
If you need to reserve a spot during the shutdown, park officials said it is best to call the park you want to visit.
Each year, the state park system takes 90,000 reservations.
