After booting DESTINET last fall, the National Park Service has chosen Beltsville, Maryland-based Biospherics, Inc. to provide a central reservation service for many of the nation’s national parks. This service will allow visitors to make campground reservations at 22 national parks, and tour reservations at Carlsbad Caverns, Mammoth Cave, and the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site.

“We are delighted to have Biospherics provide this reservation service to the millions of people travelling to our national parks each year,” said National Park Service Director Robert Stanton. “It is a vital service, enhancing the visitor’s experience by enabling them to plan their trip in advance.”

To make campground reservations at California’s Yosemite National Park, call (800) 436-PARK.
