HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) -- Riverfest wasn't the only place packing in the guests this holiday weekend. State parks across Arkansas enjoyed booked-up camp grounds and cabins all weekend long.
Today's THV traveled to Lake Catherine State Park just outside Hot Springs where park officials say they were booked-up well before the weekend even began. Now we did catch up with one family from Alexander that scored with a last-minute cancellation, but that was truly a lucky get.
For these kids from Alexander, Memorial Day weekend brought time to hang out, swim and more.
"And fishing is fun too," one girl shouts.
They did it all at Lake Catherine State Park, with the "Holiday Gods" on their side.
"We normally always book our trips really far in advance but we got super-lucky this weekend, there was a cancellation, so we got really lucky to get it," Saletha Daniel said.
