MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Natural Resources says more people are camping in state parks.

Agency officials say camping reservations are up 9.3 percent from the same time in 2011. Online reservations are up 11.5 percent and the number of walk-in campers without reservations has jumped nearly 80 percent.

DNR officials say electrified campsites are in especially high demand. They say they're working to bring electricity to more campsites and upgrade existing electric sites with higher amperage service.
