I know fees went up a TON last year. Did they go up again?

As far as the reservations, I don't think it is that big of a deal, as long as you are at a park that has phone service. Their phone center is open 24/7.

Yeah bud, the rate hikes are under the 2019 price rate hike.

That's crazy. Last year I made reservations for a weekend in December of 18. Changed those reservations to a different weekend in 2019 and learned that the fees had nearly doubled. I have made two reservations already this year, and they did seem expensive. Now I know why. Unfortunately, I am not sure what recourse we have?

This is true.

However, I am not necessarily opposed to finding additional ways to generate conservation revenue outside of sportsmen, just needs to be within reason.

A good example is I would have paid an additional $20/year to ride my dirt bike and hike the Grand Mesa (i.e. National Forest Use Permit) and another $20/yr to ride and camp in the Bookcliffs (i.e. BLM Use Permit)

A lot of people get to use the public lands and have access to the safety resources without having contributed much to the revenue stream - and I believe there are equitable ways to close the gap.

Fees in general are just going up. It is the Democrats way to get around Tabor.
