STAUNTON, Va. (AP) - Following a camper survey, Virginia is keeping its existing campsite reservation system at state parks.

The survey was conducted to determine whether campers wanted the ability to reserve a specific site.

Under the existing system, campers reserve a spot in a camping loop, but not a specific campsite. Campers pick an open site when they arrive at a park.

Nancy Heltman with the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation tells The News Leader that most campers didn't take either side in the survey.

Heltman says the existing system provides flexibility to deal with problems at a campsite, such as flooding or an electric hookup failure.
