YNP Considers Higher Camping Fees

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.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
