Start Preamble


Eldorado National Forest, USDA Forest Service.


Notice of a proposed new fee site.


The Eldorado National Forest is planning to charge a $65.00 fee for the overnight rental of Sly Guard Cabin. This historic structure has been recently restored, and has not been available for recreation use prior to this date. Rentals of other cabins on the Eldorado National Forest have shown that people appreciate and enjoy the availability of historic rental cabins. Funds from the rental will be used for the continued operation and maintenance of Sly Guard Cabin.

The Eldorado National Forest currently has four other cabin rentals. These rentals are often fully booked throughout their rental season. A business analysis of Sly Guard Cabin has shown that people desire having this sort of recreation experience on the Eldorado National Forest. A market analysis indicates that the $50/per night fee is both reasonable and acceptable for this sort of unique recreation experience.


It is anticipated that Sly Guard Cabin will be available for rent June, 2007.


Forest Supervisor, Eldorado National Forest, 100 Forni Road, Placerville, CA 95667.
