Madison Wisconsin State Journal (Newspaper) - January 16, 1981, Madison, Wisconsin Wisconsin state journal Friday january 16, 1981 Madison Wisconsin 56 pages a a a 25 cents a w him Nim i a reserved campsites gobbled up for holidays by Richard w. Jaeger of the state journal reserving a campsite at Wisconsin state Parks for the summer holidays May be harder than getting seats on the 50-Yard-line for the super bowl. According to preliminary campsite reservation reports from the state department of natural resources reserved Sites in nearly All state Parks Are filled for the memorial Day Holiday and Many Are close to full for the july fourth and labor Day holidays.

But Kathryn Sabroff of Madison disagrees with that after having her mailed reservation denied because a Sites were taken. A i called the Park because i believe the Sites would go that fast a mrs. Sabroff said. A the Park people told me that people were lined up there on Jan. 2 Long before the Park opened to make their reservations and they were filled before the mail even arrived. I think they should set aside a portion of the Sites for mail in Thorson agreed that the postmark restriction was a a quirk in the Law that has resulted in situations faced by mrs. Sabroff. Another problem Thorson Points out is that persons making reservations in person on opening Day can make More than one reservation and for More than one period. A in some cases a group of people will fill out their reservation requests and Pool them and Send one party to the Park to make them a he said. A in one instance we had a party bring in 50 reservations. They were not All processed at once but since they were turn to Page 2, col.
