Yes it is a good idea I agree on that. But what is the use of incentives to make young people go into the nature when you charge a lot of taxes in the parks. That does NOT encourage people to use nature.

USA claims they have brought the good idea of nature preservation to the world, but IMHO they have also launced some bad ideas too.

One good idea that the scandinavian countries still sustain, is the "All-mens-right" or the freedom to roam. If such a right could be tried in some of the uncultivated areas in US, I think it would be a good idea. But alas, it would not bring in any money, so it is probably a futile dream. Even given the many warning signals that are listed above.
