In addition to the descriptive articles it is proposed to issue short pamphlets on each park for the benefit of the traveler. These folders will give general information regarding the railroads tributary to the parks, the methods of transportation available within the parks, the location of hotels and camps, and the rates that are authorized for all classes of service. As the government does not operate any hotels, camps or stage lines in any of the parks, all these privileges being granted to corporations or individuals under term contracts or annual permits, this information will be published so that the traveler may intelligently plan his trip.
