Reservations for provincial parks across the province have been opening this week starting with Blackstrap and Pike Lake on April 9th. Today is the first day campers can make reservations at Moose Mountain Provincial Park.
"The reservation system that we have now," explained Joan Adams, Park Manager, "I think people have been using it for a few years and they're more comfortable and they understand how it works. You may get a few that don't get what they want but the vast majority of people are able to get the campsite that they hope for as long as they hope for."
She mentioned that they will be making some upgrades to the park.
"In the fall, we're going to be doing some electrical upgrades to service some of those bigger trailers. They use lots of power. Some of our areas are going to be upgraded so that will be good."
She added that right now, they are busy preparing for the influx of campers.
"We have the grader out in the campground trying to push the snow out of there to get it to dry. Busy with staffing and hiring and all that kind of stuff."
"We're just hoping for a really nice warm summer like we had last year. Moose Mountain is a destination park so we're always really busy. We look forward to the cottagers coming back and the tourists coming back and we should have a great summer."
Reservations will start at 7 AM.
