I saw a piece a couple of weeks ago on the Arizona situation. The state was willing at that point to turn individual parks over to private interests if a deal could be worked out along the lines of the concessionaires that run many of the campgrounds in national parks today.

That's a bad move, in my opinion.

I'm discovering that some of the Forest Service campgrounds, at least in the Tahoe area, are 'farming' the management to private companies.

At least you were able to dump. If you were at Doran, you had access to water to fill your fresh water tank as well. Some California State Parks have neither water or a dump, the Strand near San Diego for instance. It's next to the beach, but that's it baby. Nothing but a black top parking lot, and $60 per night. Not even a place to dump wash water.

Begs the question... "What are these State people thinking?"

Answer......They're not.

To all, Hope I haven't stirred up a hornets nest but the posts all bring up good points to ponder. What's the solution/fix....Who's to know. For now I'll think hard about spending the money to camp in a no hookup California State campground. Next week a lot of us (250 at last count) will be at Pismo Coast Village (private park) with full hookups and access to a great beach and town for a lot less money than the state campground next door. The state probably doesn't care about the lost revenue, they will tax something else and give the campgrounds up to a vendor/operator and take a small cut without putting any effort out. We have to enjoy the moment with our friends,family and Airstreams and if necessary travel a bit. We can visit states that want our business and appreciate the money we put into the local economies of the places we visit. Mike and Meg

Mike & Meg,

Anytime this type of thread is started, the hornets nest is shaken. Don't worry, what you bring up is good information and I hope the ranger was wrong.
