A record number of Manitobans made campsite reservations in the province’s parks on Monday.
The Manitoba Parks Reservation Service opened at 7 a.m. and had accepted more than 12,144 bookings by 10 a.m. This is an increase of 42 percent over the same time last year.
Most campgrounds will open May 10. Northern campgrounds and, weather permitting, those along the lakes will open May 17.
Bookings can be made online, by phone or in-person.
