Just deleting a post is lame in my opinion. At least make a post of what/why it was deleted. I was wondering where this thread had gone to. Aaron S

I am actually a firm opponent of developments of the campgrounds. Seriously, electricity, gazebos, paved road??? My view is that campground never go back to being primitive, things only get developed as time goes by since land managers try to show that they "did something for the community". In my view if you want to do something for the community, why don't you rip something out and lower the fees.
Albeit I am not against all development if it ensures environmental protection (e.g. trails and bathrooms) or if it involves creating more camping spots.

This is especially true at RR where freaking Vegas is a stone's throw away. If you want more luxurious accommodations, the RR canyon resort is right there.

Also, why are the walk-in campgrounds at the RR campgrounds almost always closed? Is it just a means of getting higher fees by forcing people to use the drive in sites? Honest question.

There will be public meetings on the fee increases this week!

Check out the letter that we got from the BLM the other day:

For all the folks that didn't show up to the meetings, remember that your comments are due by the 16th of Nov. There were three climbers at the first meeting. Hopefully more showed up at the later one. Remember, if ya don't show up or comment, ya got no right to complain. To answer a few popular questions: By law, any $$ collected here, stays here. The fee increase corresponds to the rising cost of upkeep and keeping up with the operational budget. This is a draft business plan. Public comments are highly solicited. It is not set in stone. Make your opinions heard. Join your local climbers liasion council. and show up. cheers. smassey
