      isn't that unusual.  I know Yosemite has property in the Wawona area owned by private parties, I assume other parks do too.

      Private property.  Great Smoky Mountain for one.  If the residents refuse to sell outright and leave, the government allows the home to remain with the family living in it at the time of the annexation.  When the last family member (living in the house at the time of the annexation) dies or leaves, the government takes title to the property.
