The DNR "is seeking public input to identify which campgrounds should be considered for closure or management by others." A questionnaire will be posted on the DNR's web site until  close of business, Sept. 14, 2009, to gather info.

I've only camped in four State Forest Campgrounds, but I hate to see any of them close. However, in the current economic climate, I doubt the DNR has any choice but to cut back anywhere possible.
Cuts frome the state general fund,
a general public that doesn't want to pay higher fees and a State Legislature that is slow to come up with alternate funding equals less COs, less biologists, less campgrounds, less fish surveys, less survice.

Sorry about the typos. I gotta proof my posts a little closer.
