BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state Game and Fish Department during Memorial Day week is relaxing camping restrictions on some wildlife management areas in western North Dakota and along Lake Sakakawea.

The restrictions the past couple of years are a response to the oil boom in the region and are aimed at ensuring the areas are available for hunters and anglers. Rules are posted at entry points.

Game and Fish is lifting the Tuesday-Wednesday camping restriction on many wildlife management areas this week. The same waiver will apply during the Fourth of July and Labor Day holiday weeks.

All other public use regulations for state wildlife management areas still apply.

A list of the sites with waivers and those where camping is still prohibited every day of the week can be found at https://www.gf.nd.gov .
