(WDAY TV) - Locally, camping is seeing good numbers this Memorial Day weekend, but throughout North Dakota numbers are down.

Turtle River State Park is just one of many seeing a decline since last year.

The decrease of nearly 500 campers is likely due to cooler weather and the economic shift.

Park staff is hoping warmer weather will bring out more campers.
