The Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (title VIII, 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 new fee will be reviewed by a Recreation Resource Advisory Committee prior to a final decision and implementation. A market analysis indicates that the $100 to $150/per night fee is both reasonable and acceptable for this sort of unique recreation experience. People wanting to rent Farnsworth Cabin will need to do so through the National Recreation Reservation Service, at http://www.reserveusa.com or by calling 1-877-444-6777. The National Recreation Reservation Service charges a $9 fee for reservation.Start Signature
