Pardon me. What do you mean when you say you pay the park service to play?

That explains all.

A National Park Pass is a simply wonderful thing.

I was surprised to see that the parks in Washington did not charge anything at all for entry.
Michigan has entry fees on All of their parks and campground areas.
