The first recreation fee waiver date is coming up on January 19, 2015, for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.
Day-use recreation fees for standard amenity fee sites will be waived at all FS operated sites on these dates. The 2015 scheduled fee-free days observed by the Forest Service are:
January 19: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day
February 16: Presidents Day
June 13: National Get Outdoors Day
September 26: National Public Lands Day
November 11: Veteran's Day
Concession operated sites may be included in the waiver if the permit holder wishes to participate. Waiving of expanded amenity fees such as overnight camping, rental cabins, etc. operated by the FS will be at the discretion of the line officer. Sites listed on the National Recreation Reservation Service (NRRS) will not be included in the fee waiver due to the difficulties of refunding reservation payments.
Please take advantage of these fee waiver days to reach out to your communities and encourage people to get outside and enjoy their public lands.
If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Ebert, Fee Program Manager at (530) 647-5455.
