Wylie Park Campground The beginning of a new year means it’s time for 2022 camping reservations at Wylie Park Campground in Aberdeen, S.D., but unlike past years when reservations could be made for the entire summer, only May camping dates will be available starting today (Jan. 3), according to reporting at AberdeenNews.com

Dawn Thorstenson, concession manager for the Aberdeen Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department, said 2022 marks the beginning of a new process adopted by the parks department where camping spots will be available for reservations four months in advance.

Here’s what that schedule looks like moving forward:

  • June reservations open Feb. 7.
  • July reservations open March 7.
  • August reservations open April 4.
  • September reservations open May 2.

“I’m excited to see how it’s going to play out,” Thorstenson said noting the process is similar to the reservation policy used in the state parks.
