Topeka Kansas has launched a new system for reserving cabins and camp sites as state parks, fishing lakes and wildlife areas.
The state Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says its online reservation service — http://www.ksoutdoors.com — makes it easier to find available cabins and camp sites.
The agency temporarily stopped taking reservations online or by phone at the start of the month so that its new system could get up and running. A San Diego-based company, Active Network, is working with the Kansas agency to provide the system.
Wildlife and Parks officials say only about half of all camp sites and cabins will be available for online reservations. The rest will be set aside for visitors to claim on the spot.
