Manitobans are anticipating the first camping long weekend of the year.

While many campers have booked campsites at provincial parks in Manitoba, some from our region will be heading south to the Icelandic State Park just west of the community of Cavalier, North Dakota.

The park has been a popular destination for residents in the Pembina Valley for many years.

Park manager Mike Durre said they are ready for the large contingent of Canadians coming down from Manitoba this weekend.

"Things are shaping up pretty good. We do have a little bit of low water in the lake since there wasn't a lot of snowpack this year that would normally runoff into the lake. We're hoping for a little bit rain over the next few days, but everything in the campground is looking good, everything came online well this year, so we're in pretty good shape."

According to Durre, Canadians make up about 70 to 80 per cent of their visitors during the May long weekend.
