    Paid to park, floated the river and then drove back to drop off my son to pick his car and ranger told me i had to pay. Seriously, sux. I’m trying to find a guideline or regulation regarding this rule. Anyone?

      I always ask the rangers about this before I leave— in any park. Some places will take note of the date on your receipt, and others will charge you every time you go through the gate. I don’t know the rules, but I always ask before I plan and in and out errand.

    I hope they don’t allow kids. Nobody needs their dogs barking at annoying children.
