$50 million for only 22 camp sites??? (so far)

New York State spent $50 million for 69,000 acres and all we get so far are 22 campsites?!? When NY bought these lands, taking working forest lands that generated millions for local economies, we were told the economic benefits of tourism would make up for it.
