CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island — Kevin Jenkins, director of corporate services for the Department of Tourism and Culture, said there is no intent to sell provincial run campgrounds, but the Prince Edward Island government is open to leasing the campgrounds at Green Park and Cabot Park to the private sector if the plan is acceptable, reports The Guardian Charlottetown.
