Budget woes are impacting public lands and campgrounds across the country, leaving officials scrambling for innovative ways to deliver services to the recreating public. Now is your chance to share your thoughts on the future of public recreation in Washington State.
The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office is hosting a series of online public meetings from November through January to get people’s opinions about the future of outdoor recreation in Washington State.
The online forum will collect the public’s input concerning the demand for outdoor recreation, what people want in their parks and on their trails, what prevents people from recreating outdoors and the quality of their experiences when they do.
The online meetings begin with a string of questions regarding commercialization of parks, followed by new questions which will be added regularly. The first batch of questions ask people how they feel about allowing advertising or corporate naming rights in the state’s public parks.
Is camping at Cabela’s Conconully Campground in your future? It could very well be if you don’t make your preference known during these public meetings.
Here’s hoping that surviving a time share presentation at a public campground turned RV resort isn’t in my future. That is one adventure in RVing I don’t need!
