Hey, campers…

If you’re a fan of the Maine State Parks campgrounds, and especially if you have a specific date or a favored site, reservations open in February.

This year, for the first time, reservations will open at 9 a.m. on  Feb. 1 for sites at Sebago Lake State Park (four-night minimum), and on Feb. 8 for all other state park campgrounds. The split dates are to reduce waiting times.

This year’s camping season runs May 24 through Sept. 12; before and after those dates, sites are open, but no reservations are taken.

You can make reservations in four ways:

Online (be sure to check out the new video presentation on how the system works)

• Phone:  in state at 800-332-1501; out-of-state 207-624-9950

• Snail mail:  Bureau of Parks and Lands, ATTN.: Reservations, 22 SHS, Augusta, ME 04333.  Mailed reservation requests must not be postmarked before Feb. 1, 2010.

• In person at the Bureau of Parks and Lands office in Augusta.

Happy camping!
