As many of you know Minnesota State Parks have a one year in advance reservation system. Wisconsin State Parks have an 11 month in advance reservation system. Federal camp grounds, such as Gull Lake, have a 6 month in advance reservation system. If you do not have a reservation already made, do not hesitate to try to get a site or let us know in case someone has to cancel the use of their reservation. Please do not cancel a site before checking with the club as it makes good sense to give someone interested an option to buy it from you.
