Red River State Recreation center opens for the season

After a prolonged winter and a flood scare the Red River State Recreation Area is open for business.

After a prolonged winter and a flood scare the Red River State Recreation Area is open for business.

The park opened its sites this past monday minus running water -- however that was turned on Tuesday. Its usual opening date is May 3 but despite the late start, all reserved spots have been booked for a few weeks. While spots are filling up, the walk in parks are still closed due to wet and muddy conditions.

Catherine Johnson, Red River Parks Manager: "It's been slow because some people still -- they still have snow at their places and ice on their lakes -- so they haven't gotten their campers out so, we should have been full by now and we're filling up."

With Victoria day coming this Monday, Catherine expects the park to be filled.
