I'd be down if they did that here in CO. Then maybe I could camp in my own state without having to make a reservation 6 months in advance.

Washington state parks are already a lot more expensive than Oregon state parks. Just checked the price on a full hookup site on Washington coast. $45.

I also would be down with it here or really anywhere for that matter. You are so right I have no idea how it is in other states but I have almost given up trying to camp here in CO on the weekend here. As you said if you don't reserve a spot as soon as they are available you can't hardly get a site in a state park or NF campground here. And at least in my experience just hoping to find a spot doesn't always work out I know there have been several times where I thought oh I can get a spot and then spend half the night trying to find one and end up settling for some side of the road spot which really bites. It gets a bit easier if you are willing to travel 200 miles from the front range but that is a bit far for the weekend. Even way west Silverton, Ouray, Gunnison is packed with out of staters. Silverton maybe it is Lake City area I think it is is nicknamed little Texas do to the huge amount of Texicans who frequent the area.No offense meant to them, just not enough facilities here for years out there for the demand.

NY State Park campgrounds have had $5 out-of-state surcharge for several years now. It really doesn't seem to have made much difference in the out of state/country license count I see in the parks. Right now COVID-19 has been a bigger factor limiting out of staters and northern neighbors, but it's still difficult to find available sites even for next year. We have a two week 4th of July stay locked up along with a one week Labor Day stay for next year, but finding acceptable stays in between is proving to be difficult. We did luck into a one week cancellation for next week at a NY state park that just opened a few years ago that we've wanted to check out though. We'll be there Sunday afternoon...

Those prices wouldn't deter us from going to Oregon State Parks as WA Parks are already that much or more.

We are weekend warriors so campsite rates don’t really have much influence on where we go. But I’d be glad to pay an extra 20-30% if they would use it to build more sites.

We camp mainly in GA, AL, and FL, and sites in the better state parks stay booked. You can no longer grab a site for a spur of the moment trip at the parks you’d want to go to.

Michigan has done it forever with a higher vehicle pass price for out of state residents.

Two lines of thought on this:
- State residents own the parks, so they should get a better price.
- These are big tourist draws and support nearby businesses so you shouldn't discourage tourists.

As someone suggested, for a typical weekender, it's unlikely to have a big impact one way or the other.

RV industry pumping out the RV's. No new parks are being built or renovated for more sites [emoticon]

Regulations hamper the building of new campgrounds and make it cost prohibitive. What is the solution to this problem?

Simple parks with less amenities to keep costs down?
