Get Down, Way Down, With West Virginia's New River Gorge National Park
Free entrance. Free camping. Now this is how a national park should be. Peel off a few billion by making a handful fewer stealth fighters we don't need, and cover the national park funding it would take to eliminate fees at our own parks our taxes already go to.
Whoa, hey, got off track there.
The point is New River Gorge National Park, in West Virginia, is loaded with fishing, camping, hiking, caving, swimming, boating, and mountain biking. And. It's. Free. Now, summertime might be punishingly humid and hot, but right now, early spring? Heaven.
As you can see in this short from More Than Just Parks.
