America’s dirty little secret

Reading this article about the Girl Scouts closing their last few camps reminded me about something I was surprised to learn on my road trip: The National Parks Service has outsourced our camp sites.
At ALL the parks where I camped the land was leased out to a private entity. No more park rangers. There are now “camp hosts.” I’m not sure if this is bad or good as all the camp grounds were very well managed. It simply gives me a weird feeling.
