Yellowstone National Park is seeking public comment on a proposal to increase the daily fee charged to stay in one of the campgrounds operated by the National Park Service. For the Mammoth Hot Springs and Norris campgrounds which have flush toilets, the daily fee would be increased from $14 to $20 while other campgrounds could go from $12 to $15.  Spokesman Al Nash explains that the park service looked at the fees that were being charged for camping at similar facilities all around the region and discovered Yellowstone’s campground fees are lower than those charged by local commercial operators, neighboring National Forests, and Grand Teton National Park for campgrounds with similar facilities. Still, Nash says, the new fees are not believed to be unfairly high and a Yellowstone experience is still a great value for a vacationing family. Elsewhere, The Bridge Bay, Canyon, Grant, and Madison campgrounds as well as the Fishing Bridge RV Park in Yellowstone are operated by Xanterra Parks & Resorts.  Daily camping fees at these sites range from $20.50 to $45.00 and would not be affected by the proposal.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
