Contact(s): Debbie Maneely: 928-443-8130


In honor of Veteran’s Day and those Americans who have served in the armed forces, Prescott National Forest will waive the $5.00 fee at all day-use facilities across the forest on Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12 as part of the nationwide fee waiver event.

Fees will be waived at the following sites on the Prescott NF:

  • Lynx Lake Recreation Area:  North Shore, South Shore and Lynx Creek Ruin
  • Granite Basin Recreation Area:  Cayuse, Wekuvde, Boat Launch, Playa and Metate
  • Thumb Butte Recreation Area
  • Alto Pit OHV Recreation Area:  Day Use Site
  • Hayfield Draw OHV Recreation Area

 

The waiver does not apply to overnight campgrounds, group use fees or fees charged by concession-operated facilities. Traditionally, fees are not charged on 98 percent of national forests and grasslands. Many recreation opportunities such as camping, sightseeing and hiking can be enjoyed throughout the year at no cost.

 

Active duty military members can obtain a free Interagency Annual Military Pass that waives fees year-round at all Forest Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Reclamation, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service sites charging entrance or standard amenity fees excluding concessions-operated facilities.

 

The public can obtain additional fire information via the following:
