California State Parks. Like Motel 6, with campfires

Went to a California park this weekend.  It was $35 a night for a campsite.  You’re supposed to call an 800 number, 2 days in advance, to reserve a space.  You get to pay a 7.50 fee when you reserve.  So it’s 42.50 for the first night.  The Motel 6 10 miles back on the main highway was only 44 a night.  Yeah, it’s a park.  Yeah, we got to camp.

But watching the poor park ranger do the campsite tour every afternoon, collecting rent, was so sad…
