Camping season kicks off in the Black Hills

Not only does Memorial Day weekend kick off the summer season, but it's also the start of camping season. And campers were out in force at Pactola Lake today.

Many barbecued, took their boats out, or just relaxed and enjoyed the day. After such a rough winter, many people seem to have spring fever.

Darla Becker, of Leed, said she comes to the lake as much as she can.

"I love it. The surroundings are beautiful, the lake is fantastic, my pontoon is here, my camper. I love it," Becker said.

Camp hosts want to stress campground safety. They said to make sure any fires are out before leaving the campground.
