It's a great way to choose among more than 3,000 campsites as well as vacation cabins,
picnic shelters, community buildings and other facilities at most of our 41 state parks and state
recreation areas. We're able to offer this service in partnership with ReserveAmerica, a leader
in the reservations industry. Reservations may be made online, by calling our toll-free
number or in person by visiting most state park offices/visitor centers during regular hours.
We hope you'll explore and enjoy our 'Naturally Wonderful' state parks.
