Lake Minatare sees busy Memorial Day weekend

Posted: Updated:
With it being Memorial Day weekend, many locals wanted to get out of the house and enjoy good weather.

Lake Minatare has been one of the top destinations for locals hoping to take in the beginning of summer weather.

This weekend was a prime example. Campers say that they were thankful the only wet part of their weekend was from jumping in the lake.

Park superintendent Dan Thorton says that all of the reservable sites were taken about a month ago and the first come first served sites were full by Friday night.

He says it's a good indicator of how crowded the lake will be this summer.

"I think we'll have a busy summer," says Thorton. "We have a lot of water in the lake and we're still filling up. That always helps bring out the crowds. And if we can get good weather, we should be in good shape."

Thorton says many of the campers will likely stay until after Memorial Day to get the most of Lake Minatare.
