Recreation Fee Program

Recreation Fees

Your dollars at work

Recreation fees contribute to providing and enhancing recreation sites, facilities, and services.  Visitors benefit directly from the fees they pay.  Ninety-five percent of collections stay on the forest where collected and go into operating, maintaining, and improving recreation sites, such as campgrounds, developed day use sites, boat ramps, trails, rental cabins and interpretive programs and visitor information.  The Eastern Region has over 2,300 recreation sites; seventy-five percent are free.
