I always felt that $10 was way too cheap. It's still a bargain at $80.

Enjoy,

Perry

I have one and it is a very good thing to have. Free admission and half price camping.

Totally agree. We live near the S entrance to the Rocky Mountain National park and go in quite often. $10 for life at multiple parks? Not realistic

New Interior Secretary is for outsourcing the campgrounds. I posted an article link on this.
Privatizing National Park Campgrounds?

You're welcome folks. We probably won't be camping in the National Parks much but do plan to visit some.

Do any have full hookups?

Went to the Smokeys this week and only had no electric, no water, and no sewer. Definitely boondocking. Not enough room for our RV. Mostly had very, very small RVs, tents, or tent campers.

We stayed in a pretty nice private campground nearby.
We are ole now and can't do the primitive anymore.
Health problems. Gone are the tenting and tent camper days for us.
