||Fees waived at recreational areas for National Public Lands Day
VICKSBURG, Miss (WTVA) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) announced today that it will waive day use fees at its USACE-operated recreational areas nationwide in recognition of National Public Lands Day on September 27, 2014. They will waive the fees normally charged at boat ramps.
The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters.
USACE encourages but does not require other agencies and partners that manage recreational areas located on lands to comply with this waiver of day use fees in the areas they manage.
Volunteers who participate in one of USACE's NPLD activities will be issued a fee-free coupon that may be used for one day of entrance fees or day use fees at any federal agency's park, forest, or recreational area that charges either of these types of fees.
This coupon will be honored at all USACE projects.
In recognition of NPLD, in Mississippi, day user fees are being waived only on September 27, 2014 at the four USACE lakes in north Mississippi, namely, Arkabutla, Enid, Grenada and Sardis.
