State park fees set to increase

November 16th, 2005

The Indiana Natural Resources Commission approved the Indiana Department of Natrual Resources’ request to increase fees at Indiana state parks. The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports:

The Natural Resources Commission, which oversees Department of Natural Resources policies, passed the proposal 9-1 during its monthly meeting Tuesday in Indianapolis. Fishing, hunting and trapping licenses also will increase in 2006.

“I label it a fee restructuring,” DNR Director Kyle Hupfer said of the changes park visitors will face next year…

“Whether it was Tuesday in July or Saturday over Fourth of July weekend, a particular campsite cost the same. We think that’s a very ineffective and un-businesslike way to operate what I see as one of the closest things we have in government to retail facilities.”

The specific details are available in the post I made last week discussing the proposal.

    Retirees from NIPSCO used to have their annual reunion at the Tippicanoe state park until the park entrance fee went up from two dollars to three dollars and the following year again increased a dollar making it $4 per car.
    We used to enjoy the state park on a daily basis. We don’t go there any more.
