Privatize campgrounds, bring in food trucks, cut senior benefits: Zinke-era panel weighs in on NPs

The panel that shared the ideas was formed under former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, part of the Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee designed to “advise the Secretary of the Interior on public-private partnerships across all public lands.”
