If the rangers are spending all of their time monitoring Hazel, AT shelters, and the busy sites, let the hardly used sites stay free. I dont spend much on my gear, and when you take a group of kids everytime and you're paying everything it adds up quick. If they do the $4 per person per night, for 5 two night trips and 4 one night trips, im looking at $224, I could have bought my kids decent hiking boots for that! I havent been to any of these highly used sites, and when I do find a site with any trash in it, we clean it up ourselves. We talk about backpackers not bearing the burden of teh rest of teh park, why make people that dont camp at trashed problematic sites bear the burden for those that choose to. Im pretty happy with my relatively clean sites that are less than 3 miles from the road.
