(EL DORADO, Kan.) — Officials with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism are hoping for a successful Memorial Day Weekend.
They say after a spring which brought plenty of rain, workers have the grass mowed and are hoping people will come out.
"We've got a real good crowd in already," said Seth Turner, the Park Manager with El Dorado State Park. "Hopefully the Kansas Weather cooperates and states this way through the weekend."
This time last year, very few people were at the parks because of the excessive heat and problems with blue green algae. This year, many people are already showing up and grabbing spots in the "first come, first serve" area.
