DULUTH - Memorial Day means barbeques and camping, and for many it’s tradition to pack up an RV and hit the road.
And local campgrounds say they aren’t worried about the high gas prices affecting Memorial Day weekend business.
“We haven’t had much of a summer. They are saying it is supposed to break, we’re having a pretty good call-in right now with campers coming in, the gas prices and everything is helping us out, because it’s cutting down on our driving, where they want to go somewhere more local,” Darrell Eckenberg, Buffalo House Camp Manager said.
And as for the gloomy weather...
“Mostly it will affect the ones that are coming up tenting, you don’t get a lot of tenters right now because of the weather is cold. Basically the campers that want to get out there and have a good time they put up with the weather,” Eckenberg said.
Buffalo House has a full restaurant, bon fire pits, and is located on a state trail for biking and hiking.
The spokesperson at Spirit Mountain’s campground said they also expect a good turnout from people choosing to stay local.
