Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, USDA Forest Service.
The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest is proposing to charge a $10.00 fee at Bob Scott Campground. Fees are assessed based on the level of amenities and services provided, cost of operations and maintenance, market assessment and public comment. The fee is proposed and will be determined upon further analysis and public comment. Funds from fees would be used for the continued operation, maintenance and improvements of this campground.
Amenities provided at Bob Scott campground include drinking water, flush toilets, garbage service, and sites with tables, grills and fire-rings. The proposed fee will allow continued operation and upkeep of these amenities, correction of sanitation and safety issues, repair and replacement of facilities when necessary, and generally improved conditions at the campground. Finally, these actions would improve the recreation experience.
An analysis of the campground shows that the proposed fees are reasonable and typical of similar sites in the area.
Comments will be accepted through November 13th 2009. New fees would begin May 2010.
