Recreation Fee Site Accomplishment Reports

A Forest Service campground welcome and fee kiosk, showing two boards, one with information on regulations, the other with costs for camping, extra vehicles, firewood, and other information.The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (REA), signed into law in 2004, authorizes the Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture to establish, modify, change, collect and retain recreation fees at Federal recreation lands and waters as provided for in the Act. Our national forests and grasslands keep 95% of all fees collected at their recreation sites and reinvest the money to support local site operations and maintenance. Recreation fees are an investment in recreation.

The following reports highlight recreation accomplishments provided through recreation fee dollars, the revenues and expenditures, and a sampling of planned projects for the Forests and Grasslands in the Northern Region. Your fee dollars continue to do amazing things! Thank you for your support!
