Jan 19th 2007 8:01PM The argument of price increases is a "chicken or the egg" debate... Do increases in prices drive away visitors, or does a decrease in visitors necessitate an increase in cost? The answer is, both, and, neither. Trust me, there have been numerous studies which support both ideas. The cold, hard, truth is, the amount of money going into our national park service is declining every year. The parks are trying their hardest just to keep the parks afloat, in many cases. While larger parks like Yosemite and Yellowstone will most likely never have to worry about drastic actions, smaller parks have already begun to feel the squeeze of dwindling budgets.
I'm a member of the National Park Fund, and last summer I managed to visit about a dozen new national parks that I have never visited before. It's a shame that they have to be run like a business, but until we have a better solution, I would rather see them running at a higher cost than not at all.
As for the argument about 5 star hotels.. to each his own. However, if you need to get out of a park by a certain time so that you can make it back to your hotel, you're always going to miss some of the beauty that lies just off the trail.
