A federal inspector general’s report has found that the National Park Service improperly rented out a cabin in Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming.
The report by the U.S. Interior Department’s Inspector General’s Office says the Brinkerhoff Lodge is supposed to be used only for official government business. But it says the lodge was rented out by the Park Service in recent years to some politicians and others as a low-cost family vacation getaway.
The lodge is not available for public use.
Vice President Joe Biden is among those who rented the lodge for personal use.
The report didn’t find anything illegal on the part of the Park Service or the renters.
The Park Service has already banned any more personal use of the four-bedroom lodge.
