SUMMARY:

There will also be a $4 fee for an extra vehicle. This campground is located on the Dixie National Forest, but is administered by the Fishlake National Forest. Overnight camping at other campgrounds on the Dixie National Forest have shown that publics appreciate and enjoy the availability of developed recreation facilities. Funds from the fee charges will be used for continued operation and maintenance of the Lower Bowns Campground.

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 fee campgrounds. These facilities are adjacent to Lower Bowns Reservoir on the east slope of Boulder Mountain, in south and central Utah. This area offers significant recreational camping, fishing, boating, ATV riding, horseback riding, hiking, hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities and is rich in historical and cultural importance. A market analysis indicates that the $8/per night single family camping fee and the $25 to $35/per night group family camping fee are both reasonable and acceptable for this sort of unique recreation experience.
