USNPS trying to plan for changes in camping habits coming down the line

Travel the National Park System long enough and, if you're a camper, you're bound to develop a few favorite campgrounds. Elk Mountain Campground at Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota certainly is one of mine, and the Needles Campground at Canyonlands National Park in Utah is another. They are clean campgrounds, with well-spaced sites, tent pads, and decent restroom facilities.

But not all campgrounds are created equal, and not all campers look for the same things when it comes to pitching camp. Which is why the National Park Service is working to envision the 21st century campground.
