It's hard to believe, but Memorial Day weekend is just days away. If you would love to spend your holiday weekend camping in Wisconsin, but prefer to wait until the last minute to decide depending on the weather, you may not be out of luck scoring the best campsite this year.

Up until this year, campsites in Wisconsin's state parks needed to be reserved in advance, but things changed officially on May 1, 2019.

According to;

 a recent change to the system means that same-day reservations can be made at a number of state parks. It's a pilot program that rolled out May 1. Visitors hoping to camp at Amnicon Falls, Big Foot Beach, Big Bay, Mill Bluff, Nelson Dewey, New Glarus Woods, Potawatomi, Rocky Arbor, Tower Hill and Yellowstone Lake can go to and make same-day reservations.

Same-day reservations can also be made at any park office when it is open.

If you're wondering if this new system effects parks that have always had a same-day reservation system, it does not. says;

this pilot program does not affect the parks that have always had campsites available for walk-ups. Same-day reservations will not be subject to the $7.75 reservation fee, but each park and camping site has different charges and there is always the charge to enter a Wisconsin state park - the $28 car sticker is usually the most economical for those who want to camp.
