    It wouldn't have made much difference if the parks were clocked or not our state parks
    Still wouldn't have been given any money for proper up keep at the deterioration of our state parks. We will end up closing many like California has. Where does all the camping fees go anyway?

    Sadly it would have been more had not Mike Lee and Ted Cruz shut down our government costing billions of dollars. I have dear friends that suffered financial loss due to Zion's being shut down and the loss of tourist dollars. They won't easily forget the damage that stunt pulled.

    Governor Herbert and the legislature know that protected landscapes bring tourist dollars to Utah and yet they insist on destroying unprotected places by fracking and drilling them. Why don't we preserve the Book Cliffs, Governor, and make money by protecting the land instead of sacrificing it?

    It could be higher if the Park Rangers would actually try and be helpful when you are trying to make a reservation.

    Specifically, Kolob Arch -Zions West Entrance. Please try to care about visitors.

    Make a little effort to earn your $26 billion.

    It could have been higher if Senator Mike Lee hadn't shut down the federal government.
