That is interesting, here in Oregon we are still opening new parks both East and West side of the Cascades.
OPRD has a good funding system that gets very little money from the general fund. Main sources are User Fees, RV registration Fees (60% goes to parks), and a share of Lottery dollars.


No exactly.

Here in the Willamatte valley of Oregon we have good camping weather well into fall and sometimes beyond. Oregon state parks are extremely popular in the fall with it being a challenge to find a spot. Despite data from their own web site proving this Oregon State Parks refuses to keep parks or loops open longer thus turning away revenue and camping opportunities to all. Milo Mciver campground closes October 31 yet reservation data shows high interest. Champoeg state campground closes A loop though usage is shown to be high through October. They just do not care. Very frustrating
What did you conclude after you made the same Rant last year? RANT Even used the same All Caps title for the thread. Did you think the answers would be different?

Looking at that article, just what I stated less the 6% federal grants. The most important statement in the article is that the funding is stable!

It appears that you said the parks get "very little money from the general fund."

In fact it gets NONE from the general fund. The General Fund isn't Federal grants.
