The Impact: Hundreds of campgrounds could face closure or shortened seasons, including those run by the National Parks, the Bureau of Land Management, and the Forest Service.  

How to Manage: Concession-run campgrounds won’t be affected, so consider relying more heavily on those services. The better option: Rough it. Either with wilderness passes at National Parks or dispersed camping on Forest Service land.
