Toll Free Lines Clear and Open for
Federal Camping Reservation Program
camping reservations for next summer? Reservation agents for the
National Recreation Reservation Service (NRRS) are "standing
by," ready to take your call. The number: 1-877-444-6777 (1-877-444-NRRS).
October 15, the NRRS initiated reservations via toll-free phone
for America's National Forest lands and Army Corps of Engineers
lakes. Reservation agents rapidly whittled down the huge initial
volume, so callers now should experience no busy signals or long
But the line soon will begin to build again. Because NRRS sites
can be reserved 240 days in advance of arrival, next summer is already
here. Campers are rapidly booking Memorial Day weekend 1999, and
4th of July weekend availability will open up over the next two
"Early Birds" can even capture popular weekends ahead
of the 240 day window if their stay extends from the arrival date
through the holiday. Callers who wait too long may find their favorite
campsite taken, and very little left.
Customers can access necessary information on the Internet at ReserveUSA.com.
A long list of available campgrounds is posted there, along with
an advance reservation planning calendar.
The NRRS program scope truly is national. So far, customers can
reserve sites in 34 states, including such exotic locations as Forest
Service Wilderness Cabins in Alaska or
campsites nestled under the ragged skyline of the Sawtooth National
Recreation Area in Idaho. Corps of Engineer lakeside recreation
opportunities range from the woodsy shores of the Missouri River
to the stilled waters of Savanna River reservoirs between Georgia
and South Carolina. And the number of reservable sites will grow.
Park.Net, Inc. of Ballston Spa, NY, is the contracted service provider
for the NRRS. The company also handles reservations for New York
state campgrounds and cabins, and a California division provides
reservation services for the California State Park System.
