Ok, but is it really needed?

I wonder what the "upgade" to NP status would bring, really. If it means another Ahwanee and Camp Curry then I would say no thanks.

Probably not. Full National Park status doesn't necessarily mean tons of services. I've been to Lassen Volcanic NP twice in the past month, and they don't have any large-scale lodging, and their campgrounds are pretty much like those under the Forest Service. They might get a push for better visitor centers as well as the "prestige" of NPS operations. If this is what they really want, then they could always just push for a change to NPS management, while maintaining their status as a National Monument.
