Reservations Open Sunday for Memorial Day Weekend Camping

If you are interested in camping during Memorial Day weekend, the three-month window to reserve a campsite at an Iowa state park opens this Sunday.

This year’s Memorial Day weekend is Friday, May 24th through Monday, May 27th. Campsite reservations can be made three months prior to visiting, making this a good time to start planning a trip to a state park.

Information on Iowa’s state parks is available online at – that includes the link to make reservations.

Due to renovations to campgrounds and poor weather conditions, several state parks will not be available for camping reservations, including Geode State Park, Marble Beach State Recreation Area, and Wilson Island State Recreation Area.
