PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - People who want to go camping in South Dakota state parks over the Fourth of July weekend can start making reservations soon.

The first day to make reservations for a July 1 arrival is Saturday.

Doug Hofer, state parks director, says the holiday weekend is always a busy time in state parks, so campers need to plan ahead to get their favorite spots.

There is a $7.70 reservation fee for each site, but the charge is waived for state residents. There is also a $2 fee for making reservations on the telephone.

Campers can make reservations up to a year in advance for Custer State Park and its group lodges.
