Recreation Use Fees At a Glance Banner

At a Glance

    The Corps of Engineers camping and day use fee programs are established under the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965, supplemented by Public Law 92-347, and amended by Public Law 93-81, Public Law 93-303, and Public Law 103-66. The law provides for the charging of special recreation use fees at designated Federal recreation areas.

    The goals of the recreation use fee program are:

  • to recover a portion of the cost of administering, operating, maintaining and improving specialized recreation facilities, services, or supplies;
  • to distribute public use more effectively to preserve resources and reduce overcrowding;
  • to support the national economy through the provision of quality recreational experiences;
  • to control facility use to deter incidences of vandalism and other disruptive behavior;
  • to foster a responsible user ethic among recreation users.
