Statewide Iowa — If you’d like to spend the Memorial Day weekend in the great outdoors — there are still some camping sites available at state parks . The chief of the DNR’s state parks bureau, Todd Coffelt, says some campers have already locked in their campsites online.
He has some advice if you haven’t pre-registered.
Coffelt recommends you do a little inventory of your stuff before heading out.
One thing Coffelt says you shouldn’t take with you is firewood, so you don’t spread the emerald ash borer.
Although it is not illegal to transport firewood within the state it is still strongly recommended that firewood should be obtained only within the county where it will be burned.
