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.

The Fremont River Ranger District of the Fishlake National Forest currently has several other fee campgrounds. These facilities are within the Fish Lake Basin Recreation Area in close proximity to Fish Lake, the largest natural mountain lake in the state. It is the only equestrian campground in the area. This area offers significant recreational opportunities such as camping, boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and wildlife viewing. A market analysis indicates that the $10/per night single family camping fee and $25/per night group family camping fee is both reasonable and acceptable for this sort of unique recreation experience.
