Camping Reservations Available for Fort Sisseton Historical Festival
LAKE CITY, S.D. -- Campers planning an outing to the Fort Sisseton Historical Festival in June can make advance camping reservations this year. Guests are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to reduce their wait time at the gate. Reservations open at 7 a.m. CT on March 7 for a Wednesday, June 5, arrival.
The annual festival kicks off Friday, June 7, with the black powder shoot competition in the afternoon and a full weekend of activities follow. Festival campers can begin to arrive at noon Wednesday, June 5, and stay through Sunday, June 9. Campsites will be assigned upon arrival.
"By calling or going online, guests can reserve their south gate festival camping," said Fort Sisseton Manager, Katie Ceroll. "Reserving a campsite ahead of time will speed up check-in once you arrive at the festival. The faster you get settled in, the more time to experience the festival."
Reservations can be made online at www.campsd.com or by calling 1-800-710-2267.
