Well maybe $2 a day would be all that was needed if everyone paid. When Max used to do his early morning rounds to wake you up to pay, the compliance was close to 100%. Surprise surprise, as soon as the powers that were deemed his firm but friendly presence to be superfluous (and probably falsely economic) you could count the number of tags on tents at Easter time on one hand.

The site system seems ballsed-up, but for every person that has an opinion on it there will be 100 that will not care because they'll never pay, even if the system is clear as day and affordable.

You're right the impact of any one single user on any of those facilities is trivial, but as you know it's the cumulative effect that causes the wear and tear. Don't know what you mean by the buildings not being the latest and greatest. Last time I checked, the Wimmera is drought prone, a new bore has recently been dug and yet the toilets continue to flush. Day users driving up and winding down the window just long enough to take a photo and smell the fresh air, before winding it up so the car doesn't warm up must be less than 1% of the imapct that climbers make.

So send your emails to council, I hope that they hear you, it seems the horse may have bolted. You might have a bigger impact by casually asking your mates whether they have paid the fees and taking 10 minutes at the end of the day to walk around the campsite (even toilet block) picking up people's rubbish.
