Campground managers sue U.S. Forest Service

(Oct. 17, 2013) -- The National Forest Recreation Association and several campground management companies are suing the U.S. Forest Service, claiming the government shutdown has closed the campgrounds they run even though they do not receive federal funding, reports Courthouse News Service.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The National Forest Recreation Association and several campground management companies are suing the U.S. Forest Service, claiming the government shutdown has closed the campgrounds they run even though they do not receive federal funding, reports Courthouse News Service.

Courthouse News Service says the co-plaintiffs include American Land & Leisure, Recreation Resource Management, and CLM Services.

They say the shutdown of the federal government has cost their employees hundreds of jobs, and that “Congress has stated no intention to vote to restore campground concessioners’ ‘back pay,'” says Courthouse News Service.

They also claim the Forest Service is “nonsensically asserting that, while recreating and camping in undeveloped areas is fine, recreating and camping in developed campgrounds and recreation areas run by trained, private concessioners who do not receive any federal funds creates a risk to property, public health and safety because the Forest Service has reduced funds.”
