    I would like to reserve an RV camp site (small one) for the weekend of June 1-3 2018.
    How do i go about doing this?

  2. Bobby and Judi Thomason says:

    How can to talk to a person at Nerstand about a reserved campsite? I tried to the phone number, but I only received the run around. We need to make some adjustments in the reservation. Thank you.

    • Have a great time at Nerstrand Big Woods State Park! Don’t forget to hike to Hidden Falls if you have the time. You’ll enjoy the hike and Hidden Falls – if you can find them (being hidden and all).

  4. Deborah Marti says:

    I am frustrated in the fact that I put in a date for August 21 and 22nd and it doesn’t show what sites for an RV are available. So do I have to go through every site to see if it’s available? I will be calling in the morning to talk to a live person. Deborah
