Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Daniel Boone National Forest, USDA Forest Service.

ACTION:

Notice of new recreation fee site.

SUMMARY:

The Daniel Boone National Forest will begin charging a $25 group day use rental fee for the Alpine Picnic Area picnic shelter, the Natural Arch Scenic Area picnic shelter and the Natural Arch Scenic Area amphitheater. These facilities are currently only available on a first come first serve basis. Rentals of other picnic shelters on the Daniel Boone National Forest have shown that groups would like an option to reserve the shelters for their use. Shelter rentals allow public groups to plan activities in advance with the guarantee the shelter will be available for their use. The facilities will continue to be available on a first come first serve basis if not reserved. Fee revenue will be used to help cover the administrative cost of reserving and preparing the facilities for group rentals.

DATES:

The fee is scheduled for implementation in May of 2008.

ADDRESSES:

Recreation Fee Program Coordinator, Daniel Boone National Forest, 1700 Bypass Road, Winchester, KY 40391.
