The Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (Title VII, Pub.L. 108-447) directed the Secretary of Agriculture to publish a six month advance notice in the Federal Register whenever new recreation fee areas are established.
The Soda Spring Ranger District of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest currently has no fee campgrounds. These facilities are in close proximity to Grays Lake National Wildlife Refuge, a large marsh and riparian area. This area offers significant recreational wildlife viewing opportunities and is rich in historical and cultural importance. A market analysis indicates that the $10/per night single family camping fee is both reasonable and acceptable for this sort of unique recreation experience.Start Signature
