I know it's hard for us locals in Florida to get into our own State Parks, because of the Reserve America system. Most of the time, IF your'e lucky enough to get in, while there you see empty sites are all over the place! I realize it's because of no-shows, but there should be a way to fill these spots up for the weekend! Randy

Travelers and vacationers spend lots of money where ever they go. Many states spend a lot of money attracting visitors. I think Mc Donalds should start checking license plates at the drive through and charge more for out of state cars.

Here in NY we pay very high taxes and when the revenues dry up as they have in the last two years, the state looks to increasing revenue or decreasing services and one of the first areas to get hacked is state parks. I think $5 is hardly an excessive fee for a state park. When I go to any other state or city I'm paying separate bed taxes, occupancy taxes, or any other tax that they can dream up for visitors to their cities/states/provinces who stay in their hotels. Why should campgrounds be any different?

I agree $5.00 is not a lot considering how reasonable the camping fees are at the NY State parks but why not raise them for everyone if they realy need more money? The fee is still much lower than we pay in Ontario. I am always amazed at all the grass cutting they do compared to our Prov. parks which are left in their natural state.

I realize this was a rhetorical question but here's my guess--
They didn't raise the fee to in state folks because the
out of state folks can't vote them out of office!
