DCNR Increases State Park, State Forest Fees For 2010

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources published notice of fee increases for use of State Park and State Forest facilities effective January 1.
The new schedule includes a new pricing structure for State Parks Nature Inns along with some changes to utility prices for campgrounds and organized group cabin camps, instituting ranges for certain facilities to allow for market based pricing and adding some new miscellaneous fees.
The remaining changes are needed to compensate the Bureau of State Parks for increased utility costs at our electric campsites and fine tune our existing rate structure. For example, the changes to the boat launch and firewood permits are needed to conform to the current fees of the Fish and Boat Commission and the Bureau of Forestry.
The camping fee changes include both increasing and decreasing fees at specific campgrounds that reflect market conditions and are comparable with surrounding states current pricing practices.
DCNR said it would post a comparison of the old and new fees online.
