New Reservation System Frequently Asked Questions

Beginning Dec. 17, 2018 people booking a campsite at Wisconsin State Park properties began using a new reservation system provider, Camis USA, Inc. Reservations with Reserve America ended on Nov. 30, 2018.

Will anything change with my existing reservation?

All reservations that were booked through Reserve America, were automatically transferred to the new reservation system. The only item that will change with your reservation is that your reservation will be assigned a new reservation number by Camis USA.

Prior to Dec. 17, 2018 everyone who has an existing reservation received notice via email confirming their reservation(s) were transferred. The notice contains the old reservation number and the new reservation number. The confirmation still contains your reservation information: property, arrival date, departure date, and campsite number.

Will I have to create a new account in the new reservation system?

Yes. In the New Reservation System [exit DNR] you can create your user profile, set your password and view current reservations.

How will I know when my new reserveration is confirmed?

When making a reservation with the new reservation system, you will receive two emails. One email, from the State of Wisconsin, will contain your payment verification, confirming your payment was processed. A second email from the Wisconsin State Parks Reservation Service will state "Your site is booked," and it will have a reservation number and details of your stay (property, dates, occupants, etc.). When you receive both emails your reservation will be confirmed. To check that your reservation was confirmed, you can log-in to your account to see all your upcoming reservations. To do this:

  • Go to the New Reservation System website [exit DNR];
  • Click on the LOGIN button on the top right hand of the screen;
  • Log-in to your account;
  • Select the “UPCOMING RESERVATIONS” tab in the middle of the screen;
  • Displayed will be all your confirmed reservations that will include dates, location, site number, occupant, etc.
Will I be able to reserve shelters and amphitheaters?

Yes. Customers can reserve most day use facilities such as shelters and amphitheaters through the new reservation system, either online or through the call center.

Will I be able to reserve boat slips at Lakeshore State Park?
