Recreation fees waived Monday


Federal agencies will waive recreation user fees on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The forest pass, a day-use parking fee required on some federal lands, is waived at all U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Reclamation lands.

The waiver does not include Sno-Parks, even if those are on federal lands.

Fees are also not waived for camping, cabin rentals or services operated by private concessionaires. And, the waiver does not include state parks, or other state lands covered by the Discover Pass.

Other fee-free days on federal lands this year will be National Trails Day on June 1, National Get Outdoors Day on June 8, National Public Lands day on Sept. 28, and Veterans Day weekend on Nov. 9-10.
