TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — There are going to be changes in how much you pay for camping and cabin rentals at Florida State Parks.

Utility fees currently collected from day campers using park facilities are now going to apply to cabin stays and overnight campsites that use electricity and water.

“Utility payments and improvements are a large and growing cost of park operations,” said Eric Draper, director of the Division of Recreation and Parks.

The Department of Environmental Protection says the fees are going to be assessed daily it also says that the entry fees for state parks and trails are not going to change.

Changes will take place on May 5th.
