HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — After a decade of planning, a new state park northeast of Hutchinson quietly opened its campground this week.

Sand Hills State Park offers camping, pens or corrals for horses, and picnic areas.

The Hutchinson News reports the reservation system for the park is not yet ready but is expected to be operating by Thursday.

Ryan Stucky, regional superintendent for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, encouraged those wanting to camp at the park to wait until after the reservation system is ready at www.reserveamerica.com .

Sand Hills State Park campers will need the regular state park vehicle permit.

An official ribbon-cutting is scheduled for Sept. 11.
