Labor Day Camping Reservations

Labor Day Camping Reservations

If a National Forest campground allows reservations, in most cases, they also have a good number of first-come-first-served campsites.  Reservable campsites may be reserved up to 6 months prior to your arrival date.  Group campsites may be reserved up to 1 year in advance.

You may also reserve your campsite at least 4 days prior to your arrival.  So, theoretically, you could reserve a campsite today for your Labor Day Weekend.  However, the number of reservable campsites are now few and far between for the upcoming holiday weekend.

Your best chance in securing a first-come-first-served campsite is to start your weekend a day or two early.  To avoid last-minute disappointment, confirm with the Campground Manager that your site is a first-come-first-served site and cannot be reserved by someone else until you leave.  Do not leave your campsite unattended for more than 24 hours.

Planning ahead:  Labor Day for 2017 falls on September 4th; the prior Friday is the 2nd.  So make your group reservation in a couple weeks or put a reminder on March 1st, 2017 to make your single family site reservation for Labor Day 2017.  Maybe start watching a few days before that so you don't miss out on your favorite campsite.

Good Luck and Happy Camping!
