Duncan approves camping fee increase

DUNCAN, Okla._The City of Duncan approved an increase to camping fees at area lakes Tuesday night during the City Council meeting.

Mayor Ritchie Dennington says the camping fees were raised from $10 to $17. They will no longer give discounts to campers, instead everyone will pay the $17 fee. Mayor Dennington says the city was losing money due to electricity costs. Campers were using more electricity than they were actually paying for. 

The mayor says the money from the fees goes into the city's general fund and the goal is to put that money back into maintaining the lakes.
