MEDORA, ND: Theodore Roosevelt National Park will offer online reservations for camping for the first time beginning Monday, March 2, 2015.
The park will accept reservations for the Roundup Group Horse Campground, the Juniper Group Campsite in the North Unit, and the Cottonwood Group Campsite in the South Unit through the recreation.gov website. In addition, half of the general sites in the Cottonwood Campground will be available for reservation. The remainder of the general sites in Cottonwood Campground and the entire Juniper Campground will continue to be available on a first come, first served basis.
"The use of our group campsites, especially the Roundup Group Horse Campground, has become so popular that it's necessary to go with an online reservation system," said Chief Ranger Dean Wyckoff. "Many visitors also appreciate the option of being able to reserve their campsites ahead of time when they are planning their vacations."
Theodore Roosevelt National Park's online reservation system will "go live" on March 2. Reservations can be made at www.recreation.gov or by calling the Recreation.gov Call Center at 877-444-6777. Call center hours are 10:00 a.m. ET to midnight ET from March 1 through October 31 and 10:00 a.m. ET to 10:00 p.m. ET form November 1 through February 28. The call center is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
Recreation.gov is operated through the National Recreation Reservation System, providing reservation and information services for 12 federal agencies including the National Park Service, the Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Army Corps of Engineers.
