Arkansas state parks are gearing up for a busy holiday weekend. But this time around, there are some changes because of our recent storms.

Park Superintendent Richard Boyes says that this week’s storms makes this weekend the first time all season that campfires are now allowed at

. Campfires are also now allowed Lake DeGray, Lake Ouchita and Wooley Hollow State Parks.

Boyes also says the stormy weather cancelled camping reservations during a weekend that’s usually booked a year out. State park and tourism officials also confirmed the rise in camping cancellations; many they say from out of state guests leading up to the storm.

So that means there could be some extra sites if you reserve soon. And Boyes says that the weekend’s shaping up to a good one.

“We don’t anticipate any problems as far as the weather goes; if it stays like this the rest of the weekend, it will be beautiful and we’ll have a lot of folks,” Boyes said.

As a final reminder, if you want to call for a reservation, Superintendent Boyes at Lake Catherine says to call by 8 a.m. the day before to see if there are any campsites.

Cunningham Falls State Park in Frederick County will be closed to the public for three days next month while world leaders gather nearby at the Camp David presidential retreat for the G-8 Summit, according to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.

Members of Occupy Baltimore have called on protesters to reserve campsites at the park. But Bushman didn’t know whether group members had made camping reservations — or whether the security concerns were related to their plans.

Cunningham Falls will be closed from Thursday, May 17 to Saturday, May 19. The annual G-8 Summit — a gathering of the heads of government from the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United Kingdom — is schedule for May 18 and 19.
