Notice of proposed new fee site.


The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest is planning to charge an $8 per site per night fee for overnight camping at Hickey Gap Campground. The fees listed are only proposed and will be determined upon further analysis and public comment. This campground has five creek-side campsites and has been available for camping use prior to this date. Visitor use monitoring on the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest has shown that people appreciate and enjoy the availability of quality outdoor camping facilities. Funds from the campground will be used for the continued operation and maintenance of Hickey Gap Campground.


If approved, Hickey Gap Campground will start charging fees in January 2010.
