While some NFS concessionaires are better than others, their contracts call for them to honor the terms of the Golden Age pass. Again, there was some confusion earlier this year as to how much the discount would be and there have been complaints about some concessionaires that have refused to honor the terms. I know for a fact that when campers have had problems, that a call to the local NFS have resolved the problems quickly.
