I'm in the process of reading one of the best trip reports I've ever read. However, I'm disturbed at how the author attempts to glorify camping at public gov't camp grounds with out paying the appropriate fees. I'm ok with camping on unimproved property in a stealth manner, however if you plan on camping in a camp ground I believe you should pay the fee. The money is applied to improving and maintaining our parks. You are stealing from your fellow citizens by not paying the fee to utilize the grounds. I find the practice disgusting, and I hope other travelers will speak out against this practice.
