SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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. These new fees will be reviewed by a Recreation Resource Advisory Committee prior to a final decision and implementation.

The Malheur National Forest currently has 35 campgrounds. Of these 35 campgrounds, the Malheur National Forest is proposing modest increases in fees at 15 sites where fees are currently charged and to begin charging fees at 8 additional sites.
