I thought it had something to do with the original legislation in NC
& TN granting the land to the park. That it was stipulated in the
grants no entrance fees could be charged. And, would require acts from
the two states to change that mandate. ???
Quoting hiker 317 :
I thought that the $5M that the Rockefeller family chipped in
for the Park had a stipulation attached regarding no entrance fees in
the future, so, does that mean that the Rockefeller Foundation would
have to sign-off on any entrance fee proposal, or would the chain of
"...promises to keep, and miles to go..." before we weep have a more
convoluted path. I would imagine that if there is a fee charged for
backcountry travel, the Occupy GSMNP folks will have much nicer
tents/gear than the Occupy (wherever) folks...
