South Dakota officials say state recreation areas damaged in last year's flooding along the Missouri River will be open in time for Memorial Day weekend.
Farm Island Recreation Area near Pierre has been repaired and the park's main campground is set to open Thursday.
Two of the campgrounds at Oahe Downstream Recreation Area just below Oahe Dam have already opened. The third campground in that recreation area is set to open Friday.
All campsites at North Point Recreation Area near Pickstown also have opened with full facilities available.
State Parks Director Doug Hofer says the Game, Fish and Parks Department did not expect to have the campgrounds open until June. But he says the warm spring helped crews get a lot of work done.
