Visitors to California state parks can reserve campgrounds and lodging with a new booking system launching this week.

SFBay.com reported that starting Tuesday (Aug. 1), residents can go online using the ReserveCalifornia service to reserve campsites up to six months in advance on a rolling basis. Previously, the state offered reservations for certain blocks of dates in advance.

Other features of the new system that will be rolled out between next week and March 2018 include interactive maps with more detailed views of campsites. There will also be 41 additional state parks added to the new system, park officials said.
