Assistant Ranger of Recreation Land Evan Miller explains why those not making reservations have the advantage.

"In the state of Wisconsin, the National Forest manages about 1,200 campsites over 49 different campgrounds," said Miller. "Of those, about 75 percent are first-come, first-serve. So individuals who are here first will have the first pick. The other 25 percent are reservable through Reserve USA."
