The majority of the recreation fees collected stay on the forest and go right back into operating, maintaining and improving the recreational opportunities visitors use and value the most - campgrounds, developed day use sites, boat ramps, trails, rental cabins and lookouts, and much more. Funds are also used to provide enhanced services such as interpretive programs, visitor information, and transportation systems. Take a look at the forest accomplishment reports for specific details on how your fees were used.
National Accomplishment Reports
Reports to Congress are compiled every three years and include information on all federal agencies that charge fees under the Recreation Enhancement Act.
