Plymouth County Campsites Busy this Holiday Weekend

(Le Mars) -- Camping over Memorial Day weekend is almost as American as baseball

and apple pie. Plenty of people will be at the parks this weekend, as Le Mars

Municipal Park manager Dan Peters reports that the Willow Creek Campground is

full. All 32 sites are taken, and at least 20 people have been turned away. 

Campgrounds at Plymouth County's Hillview Recreational Area are spoken for as

well.  However, Parks Director Dennis Sohl says that the spots aren't actually

considered full until the campers show up.  He does expect that things will be

busy at all the parks this weekend and recommends that people remember to

respect their neighbors while taking it easy this Memorial Day weekend.

If you didn't get a spot in Plymouth County, check out what's available in

Woodbury.  Woodbury Conservation Board Director Rick Schneider released

information earlier this week saying that all county park facilities are ready

for visitors this weekend.  Recent storm damage at Little Sioux Park near

Correctionville and Southwood Conservation Area near Smithland have been cleaned

up and all campgrounds are ready for campers. Additional campgrounds are

available at Snyder Bend Park and Brown's Lake Bigelow Park near Salix. 


Swimming beaches in Woodbury County are also opening Saturday, and will stay

open daily from 11am to 8pm through Labor Day, weather permitting.

No matter where you're enjoying your time outdoors this weekend, Plymouth County

Parks director Dennis Sohl encourages you to have fun and be safe.
