Well, Park and day passes don't bother me as you usually get
your monies worth. But as described above a $500 fine for stopping to take a picture????? Heck, worst case out here I know of if you don't drop your $3.00 for a day pass is $77.00. And the State and County has long since figured out that if (all the Rogue River park sites) you "require" a car to have a County and a State sticker all you'll get is a lot of '' tweeked off locals."
Other parks (not on the river) you need to have the proper day/annual pass. Which is 'ok' by me as they're kept clean, neat, port-a-poties, and all. What the State funds would never, ever, cover the real nut.
