Camping in your local state park is a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July. It is definitely a popular day for camping, but don’t worry if you don’t have a site booked yet — there are still some parks with camp sites available on Thursday, July 4.
Just don’t wait too much longer, you must book a campsite is 48 hours in advance, which means by Tuesday, July 2.
If you’d rather try your luck, there are also several parks that reserve campsites for first-come, first-served. It’s a bit of a gamble, but it might pay off big! Be sure to go early Thursday morning if you’d like to camp on the Fourth of July, and have a back-up plan just in case.
Happy Independence Day!
