Campgrounds in national parks set to be privatized in new Trump plan

Campgrounds in national parks set to be privatized in new Trump planThe Trump administration is moving forward with an ambitious plan to give private businesses greater access to national parks, according to a memorandum written by an advisory council for the Department of the Interior. Drafters of the plan say it amounts to little more than a much-needed modernization of aging infrastructure, and that the goal is to make national parks accessible to a younger, more diverse audience. There are 419 national parks in the United States, from the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to the Gates of the Arctic in Alaska.
