2004 letter to NV State Parks -|- Response from State Parks

From the SNU November 2005 newsletter

Nevada is planning on expanding and developing RV areas in two Southern Nevada State Parks. In part due to a letter the SNU wrote to the Nevada Division of State Parks in 2004, we were contacted to provide ideas and input on these projects. Larry Chapen, the Landscape Architect with the Nevada Division of State Parks visited the Davis Creek rally on Friday and brought a copy of the preliminary plans for a class A section at the Valley of Fire. When he left two hours later he had an entire overlay page full of suggestions and ideas. Some were basic and some were more innovative. As it turned out Larry had some pretty unique resources for this input. Not only was he able to tap the lifelong camping and RV experiences of all the SNU members present, he received input from Wes Warn who has owned an RV park and Anita Leipper, a full timer who had just spent the summer being a camp host in several Oregon State Parks. Among the many ideas discussed were the concept of one way versus two way roads through the entire campground, where the entrance and camp hosts should be located, sinage for hiking trails, a designated pet area, width of parking pads, access for emergency helicopters, wi-fi, cell phone, and pay phone access, the potential for long term campers, security issues, and trash management. It was a very profitable and enjoyable experience for all of us.
