They have to in ID.IDAHO,

USA — Idaho State Parks will double the price for out-of-state campers and visitors starting Thursday, June 10 to comply with a new state law.

House Bill 93 specifies an increase in fees for some of the state's busiest parks, including Bear Lake, Farragut, Hells Gate, Priest Lake and Round Lake. The new price for non-residents to enter the parks jumps to $14. For out of state campers, a basic campsite at those parks will cost $48 a night.


We ran into this a couple of weeks ago, at Farragut State Park.
Washington State Parks charges a $5 extra fee for out of state campers.
At Farragut, including taxes, fees and Reserve America's cut, a W/E site cost us $80 per night![emoticon]
I'm fine paying 25% extra but not 100% extra. IMHO, that just says "don't camp at our state parks because you're not welcome".
So we won't return to Idaho State Parks until they charge a more fair fee for out of staters.

I would love for Wisconsin to start charging more for out of state campers. I don't think it would deter any of them from coming here. Raise out of state 25% and leave resident fees the same.
Half of the time we go into the parks near us on the weekend, we can't get a parking spot because the park is full of Illinois people. Raise their fees for entrance and camping. Use the extra money to build more campgrounds.
[emoticon] Raise WI state park rates for out of staters? I already avoid WI state parks; between the entrance fee and the camping fee, it's too high for me as it is. When I camp in WI it's at an inexpensive spot, like a municipal CG. Last time I visited a WI state park (Peninsula), I parked outside the entrance and bicycled through the gate for free. [emoticon]

We are the reason you have such a nice state, our tourist $$$$!
Without us you would see your taxes triple and watch your parks and highways suffer!

If a 25% increase meant an additional $5 or even $10 increase per night, it wouldn't necessarily be a difference maker to me. At some point, if it did make a difference, I'd decide at that point if it was worth it or not.

I personally don't have a problem with it. I will say I don't believe I've experienced that in state parks in Georgia, Florida, Alabama or South Carolina.

That boils down to $5.00 to $8.00 a night extra. I can just about guarantee you'll make that back in the lack of a statewide sales tax. It won't bother me either way if it deters some people...we'll survive.

[emoticon] Hi, we go where we want to go and pay the price. I don't like California and Canada gas prices either, but that's not going to stop me from going there. Instead of letting the 25% charge get to you, just skip your Starbucks. [emoticon]

And WASHINGTON and MONTANA. and likely quite a few other states. Not sure what all the fuss is about, many states charge more for out of state residents for state park campgrounds. Hasn't stopped us from camping in any of those state parks.

We find places we want to go and don't worry about campground fees.
