Unlike that dirty rotten greedy park owner, I am sure you have passed on every chance you have had to increase your income.
In retrospect that appears to be a bad decision on your part. Because if you had taken those opportunities to increase your income you could likely afford to pay that nightly rate and still stay for a month.

It has nothing to do with my ability to afford it for a month. For us, the price now just exceeds the value/experience of staying there but I appreciate your concern for my finances.

Greed? Lol
That’s as funny as the out of state fishing license post!

You must be a very generous person to think that simple capitalism is greed (generally the term greed has a negative connotation).

If your boss offered to double your pay, you’d refuse because it would be greedy? Lol

Edit, my post is sort of a double post…oops.

Well, the bright side is, with any luck the economy keeps holding out next year,even with the govt (at all levels in lefty states) is draining the businesses and tax paying working folk.
And hopefully the supply chain issues aren’t solved and now people are new campers…
Then I can be “greedy” and sell some poor sucker my setup for far too much money still, like could have this year!

PS, this isn’t political, just math. This state has directly or indirectly siphoned approximately a million dollars out of me ( more accurately the company I work for) on just 2 different construction projects due to their policies and mandates since the Vid started. And I’m not done bleeding yet. But it sure is hard to recoup…correction, impossible.
It’s bad enough that the board of directors (Canadian company) is considering pulling the plug on our US infrastructure Ops because it’s now worse than what Canada takes from them!
Never mind the 2 new personal state taxes being implemented this year pulling out of my pocket personally.
And I’m not even camping at an out of state State Park!

When demand exceeds supply it's only natural for prices to rise.

A sure way to attract tourism dollars is to tax the tourists heavy, NOT.

Actually prob the opposite will happen with the cheapskates moving on leaving room for those willing to spend more $$$/capita than those w butthurt over paying an out of state rate.

Besides the tax funds the one of the most necessary parts of camping, the campground (and the OR rest stops.)

You're welcome and so are others that deserve to be compensated for sacrifices made on behalf of the US.


(At least you realize you're being subsidized unlike others in this thread that get angry when the party is over.)

"Kids we aren't going to Disneyland or Yellowstone, or that state park in Oregon because the tax rate is too high" is something no one has ever said.
