New system to reserve campsites
A new system that’ll debut this spring will allow anyone, no matter where they are, to reserve space at Oconee’s three county parks. Starting this Thursday, reservations will be available to Oconee residents through the county Parks, Recreation and Tourism or by calling the Reserve America call center. Online reservations for everyone begin May 8 at www.reserveamerica.com. Phil Shirley, county PRT director, says there are a couple of phone numbers to keep handy. The Oconee PRT office is 864/888-1488. The reservation call center is 855/622-6727.
