Should there be a fee for beaches?

A popular free NJ beach is considering charging beach-goers next Summer.

Wildwood Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. said the potential fees will help pay for beach maintenance, and he does not want that cost to fall on taxpayers. The Wildwood beaches are some of the last few free beaches in New Jersey.

Should Wildwood impose a fee for users of their beaches? Adding a fee to the beach may discourage visitors, especially when beaches in nearby states do not charge users. While it may be a burden for taxpayers to pay for Wildwood’s upkeep, is it necessary to charge people to use something that exists naturally? If parks don’t charge visitors admission, should beaches follow the same standard?

Do you have any suggestions on how Wildwood could raise funds for maintenance costs without having to charge a beach fee?
