Florida’s state park system was given an approval Friday to pursue private development of campgrounds inside as many as 56 state parks.

Sate Parks officials told the Acquisition and Restoration Council… a panel that oversees use of Florida’s conservation lands… that establishing privately run camping inside state parks would make the park system less dependent on state funds while providing more camping opportunities to the public.

The ARC panel voted 7-2 to allow park officials to accelerate a process, with potentially less public scrutiny, to determine which of the 56 parks would get privately managed camping and how those campgrounds will be operated.
