RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Six state parks are part of a pilot program that allows visitors to reserve a specific campsite.

Typically, a visitor to the more than 1,700 campsites within the Virginia State Park system books a site based on the type and size they are seeking. The specific location of the campsite isn't known until a camper arrives.

Under the pilot program, reservations will be site-specific. The program is good for visits starting in March 2015.

The parks participating in the pilot are Belle Isle State Park in Lancaster, Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry, Douthat State Park in Millboro, First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach, Grayson Highlands State Park in Mouth-of-Wilson and Hungry Mother State Park in Marion.
