Campgrounds booming for 4th of July celebration

The 4th of July means the busiest week of the year for many campgrounds around the country. This year the Red River Recreation area in East Grand Forks is no different.

The campground is packed full. There's about 400 people staying there tonight. To keep up with the steady flow of campers, the manager says she's had double the staff working since last weekend. Many have had their 4th of July reservations since last year. They say this is the spot where you can do it all -- shop, bike, watch the fireworks, but most of all just relax. And with a slow, wet start to the season, they say the long hours have been worth it.
