Fees for Arizona’s Coconino National Forest campgrounds could increase substantially later this year, according to KJZZ. 

For example, under the proposal, camping at the Moqui site would move from $30 per night to $100.

Spokesman George Jozens said it’s been more than a decade since any fees have changed in the Mogollon Ranger District.

“It’s going to cover things like vault toilet repair, adding toilets, cleaning of them, people coming to pick up trash at those sites,” Jozens said.

While Jozens admits campers may perceive sticker shock, “some of the group campgrounds hold between 50-300 people and up to 50 vehicles. So, it’s really a good bargain when you compare those prices to a Kampground of America Inc. park for instance.”
