To the editor:
My wife and I have been campers for more than four decades and have frequented state-run facilities in many states, including Kansas. We have often longed for our own state’s camping facilities to be on a par with those of such places as (yes!) Missouri, Arkansas and Mississippi, just to name a few.
In our experience, federal (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) facilities are superbly run and maintained, and are far better than neighboring (Kansas) state parks. Be that as it may, our governor believes that Kansas should take over those federal recreational facilities. After all, nothing that is done by the federal government can possibly be effective — can it?
