MADISON - The Legislature's finance committee has voted to raise state park and camping fees.
Gov. Scott Walker's budget proposal calls for an end to funding park operations with tax dollars and make the parks self-sustaining through fees and sponsorships.
His plan calls for raising annual entrance fees for state residents and non-residents by $3 and park and forest camping fees by $2. The state Department of Natural Resources has indicated it would consider selling naming rights to state parks as well.
