The Arapaho National Recreation Area (ANRA) is a section of National Forest on the Sulphur Ranger District that is designated as a “National Recreation Area” due to its high-use. As legislated by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act this area has a fee program that is essential to providing quality facilities and services such as boat ramps, campgrounds, picnic areas, trail maintenance, etc within the recreation area.
