National Park Services proposes fees for select New River Gorge camp sites

Posted:

(WVVA)- The National Park Service is asking the public to weigh in on a proposal to charge fees at three free campgrounds in the New River Gorge National River. 

According to the proposal, visitors would pay five dollars per night to use the Army Camp, Glade Creek, and Grandview Sandbar campgrounds near Prince.

The park service says there are two reasons for the proposal.

One is budget cuts and rising maintenance costs. The other is crime.

A public comment period runs through November 24th.
