Well, parking and walking in is a pretty tough option, as many of these parks have little or no parking outside of their boundaries -- and the walk in can be a very long one. I'm sure these factors won't stop the drug dealers, meth-brewers and vandals who are always attracted to open space that doesn't see daily patrols or much public use. I don't want to have to carry a Browning Hi-Power when I go to a state park -- albeit a closed one -- to fish. I also wonder where all the kids will go to be outdoors -- especially in this horrible economy -- if the parks close. I sure wouldn't drop my kid off at a locked, closed gate for the day.
