This increase is extreme from what it was to what it will be! I think Lake Robinson is beautiful, and I've kayaked on it a few times, but with this increase I don't think I will be heading out on the lake any more. I don't mind paying a $3 daily fee to go out on the lake, but increasing this from $3 to $20 a day is ridiculous IMHO. I only go out for an hour or two.

Shelter fees have increased greatly as well.

I can understand increasing fees with the times, but I would rather see a gradual increase over time than such a huge increase all at once.

The only good thing is the fishing fee will stay the same. I've never caught anything the few times I've gone.

I wish CPW would reconsider the daily fees to go out on this beautiful lake!

Wow, that's crazy. It is beautiful on the lake. I hope they reconsider. I also wish we could swim there.

Lake Robinson and Lake Cunningham have become popular local lakes that is seeing more usage. Rates have not changed since 1986. I hate to see prices increase for usage, but if it pays to maintain the lakes and keep costs low in the future, it is a sound decision.

Why increase all fees EXCEPT the fishing fee? If fees are increased, it should be equally and across the board. $20 a day to paddle a kayak across the lake is insane! Crazy that the fishing fee is $5 per year while paddling a kayak is $20 a day or $55 a year. Seems like the fees for those activities should be roughly similar.
