Crater Lake Fees Doubling?

In Outdoors on January 12, 2007 at 6:11 pm

According to Kurt Repanshek of National Park Traveler, Crater Lake National Park intends to double its entrance fee to $20.00.

Several years ago when I first started researching an article on Oregon’s only national park, one of the administrators told me that the park had a hellish maintenance backlog and had begun to cut ranger-led programs because President Bush’s commitment of money to the park system had been more politics than economics. Bush’s war has insured that this situation would remain dire. But passing on the costs of the park to its users, who are already double-paying in both taxes and fees, is unacceptable. I’m pleased to discover that my representative, Peter “The Foz” DeFazio, agrees. According to Kurt, Rep. Greg Walden has joined the Foz.
