Holla-Jay Secretary-Treasurer County- of Warner No. S Warner, Alberta ited by cur budget as to how much Ve can do in a year." Prior to the trailer-popular- ity boom of the '60s, campsite development was a piecemeal affair. But demands resulted in the provincial government reviewing construction plans, Mr. Galliver said. DEMAND IS RISING "The result has been that now we are working toward the standardization cf parks and campsites for each partic- ular use wilderness, rus- tic or bigily developed. "We are caught between two ideas. There are those campers who like a rustic- lype environment, while there are the more sophisticated trailer-tewing travellers who like water and sewage disposal." He said the Utter group had resulted in great pressure on campsites where such conven- iences are provided, such as Cypress Hills in southern Al- berta adjacent to the Saskat cbewan border, Wabamun, 30 miles west of Edmonton, ar.d Bow Valley near Banff. And witi increased yearly trailer sales, the demand for more services has increased propcrtioEately, he said: "There is a swing to the pri- vate developer. This move will be welcomed by the gov eminent to relieve pressure overcrowdijrg and over-use in provincial parks and camp- sites. "There are few private campsites in Alberta yd, bu a United States organization has been formed, Oarcp grounds of America, whic will enter the field and proba- ly spread into Canada. "But for the lime being, are eliminating and rtfining some of our older park? and lampgrouEds and new Ueili- ies will be started from a basic concept." CONFORM TO PLAN Under recently adopted system, a master plan fa- each proposed campate wouH include a site analysis; deter- mination of use, whether for overnight or holiday parking; wilderness, or higHy devel- oped. From this plan, the ment would introduce certain features each year until the site conformed to ttat matte- plan. The rapid increase of trailer use and projected future in- creases will require a (rater number of weU-deveinped sites, Mr. GaHiver said. In the early 'Ms only M per cent of campers used trailers, compared with an estimated 70 per cent now. The tread has resulted in in- creased campsite construction and maintenance costs. And we "can't get away from higher campers' fees needed to improve and maintain facil- ities." "There may have to be entrance fees imposed on campers entering provincial perks to offset oasis, but we are only corftemplatinr the move at present. "Entrance fees would mora fairly distribute revenue be- tween UK overnight camper and the day picnicker. Camp- ers now pay a night. while the day picnicker pays nothing."
