National park closure, anyone here been inconvenienced?

I can only imagine how frustrating/infuriating it must be if one had reservations at a National Park or other attraction and was either told to get out or not allowed in due to the govt shutdown. Have any of our members experienced anything related to this?

We had reservations at a local COE campground this weekend which in itself isn't that big a deal, there are other campgrounds in the area. We had also planned to do some fishing, best spot is below the dam, but both sides are COE recreation areas which are also closed, so not to happy

Have a friend hosting a park in California that says he may be coming home, but it was getting close to closing time anyway because he's at a high elevation.

Just for the sake of argument it could quite possibly be illegal to demand you vacate a campsite for which the government has already been paid for its use. Short of a natural disaster such as a flood, earthquake or fire there should be no requirement for you to leave your rented site until the time that has been paid for has expired.

Just food for thought.

In the scope of the disaster our congress has flung upon us this is almost insignificant. Annoying none-the-less.

Yes, I too, have a paid-for reservation at a COE park for Monday 10/7 that is not likely to be honored.

I think you may be right. Yosemite and Sequoia NP are refusing arrivals and issuing refunds, but if you are already in the park you can stay through your reservation. At least that is what our local news is reporting, I live very close to both parks.

Everyone here was given until 8pm tonight to vacate the campgrounds, refunds were given for the "unused" portion.

Just curious, are they giving an actual cash on the barrel head money refund or just a verbal promise to do so?

That I don't know, we are supposed to have ours put back on our CC, not sure how they are handling it at the campground.

amabee, that's about what I thought. With all of the problems they are going to encounter getting things going again the refunds may take some time.

So who is on duty to throw you out of the park if you are already paid up and checked in? Just curious, someone must still be working.
