Cost, Effects of Added Campsites Under Review

From Times Wire Reports

National Park Service officials reportedly are reexamining the costs and consequences of adding nearly 800 campsites here.

According to a consultant’s study, it would cost $104 million to add 788 campsites outside Yosemite Valley.

“At that price, you could build a multiroom Marriott hotel,” said U.S. Rep. George Radanovich (R-Mariposa) on Wednesday.

“I know the park service is reviewing those estimates,” the congressman said, “because they think they’re way out of line.”
