USNPS quietly disbands advisory committee that recommended privatizing NP campgrounds

An advisory committee on recreation on public lands established by former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke was quietly disbanded earlier this month by National Park Service Deputy Director David Vela.

The Park Service did not make the move widely known, and only shared it with the Traveler on Tuesday in the wake of an editorial that mentioned the committee's efforts to see National Park System campgrounds "modernized."
