A Trump administration committee is seeking to “modernize” national park campgrounds by potentially introducing food trucks, WI-FI, and Amazon deliveries.
“Our recommendations would allow people to opt for additional costs if they want, for example, Amazon deliveries at a particular campsite,” Derrick Crandall, vice-chairman of the Made in America Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee, told the Los Angeles Times.
These suggests come at a time when the Trump administration has cut National Park Services spending by 15%, according to The Guardian. The service is currently facing a more than $11 billion maintenance backlog.
The committee responsible for this proposal also suggested removing the 50% senior citizen discounts on campsites during busy seasons and holidays like the Fourth of July, among other changes.
Currently, the committee’s recommendations are under review by the National Park Service. A spokesperson for the service told The Guardian that “no action has been taken on the committee’s recommendations” at this time.
