Alberta Campground Reservation System A Big Hit
It's only been a day, and already 70% of Alberta's provincial park campsites are booked for the May long weekend, according to iNews880, Edmonton.
That's partly thanks to the Alberta government's new online reservation system that became operational Monday.
Camille Weleschuk with Tourism, Parks and Recreation says though there are alternatives to booking online.
"The on-line reservations are great for those wanting the piece of mind of knowing that when they arrive, the campsite's already ready for them. But, we have another 140 provincial campgrounds that offer first-come-first serve campsites for those who like to decide last minute as well."
And, for those who want to reserve by phone, the number is (877) 537-2757.
