Campsites Go Quickly With Online Registration

More than half of North Carolina's state park campsites have been booked through 2010 thanks to a revamped Internet-based registration system.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday that a new Internet and call center reservation system launched in July has been so popular, more than 1,300 of 2,000 available campsites for 2010 have already been booked.

The new system eliminates the old tradition of standing in long lines at popular state parks on New Year's Day. Campers previously reserved spots at state parks including Kerr, Jordan and Falls Lake by standing in line and paying at the park or mailing in a check.

Last year nearly 13 million people visited North Carolina's state parks and recreation areas.

    I used this online system 3 times this past summer and love it. Just remember when you go to these camp grounds write down your top 3 or 5 favorite campsites so you have options. Love it and takes the stress out of getting to the campground and getting a good site!! 1 good thing the state of NC has done besides the no smoking law coming up.
