In February of 2013, the Roswell Field Office prepared the Rob Jaggers Camping Area Business Plan which was brought before the Pecos District Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) during its development, as required by the REA. Notice was published in the Federal Register on August 1, 2013 (78 FR 46598) and the Business Plan was available for a 6-month comment period. After the comment period closed on March 12, 2014, the RAC unanimously approved the proposed expanded amenity fee schedule. Under the schedule, there is a $5 fee for water hookup, a $5 fee for electric hookup, a $15 fee for using the dump station, and a $25 fee for reserving the group shelter. Overnight camping will remain free of charge. Fee amounts will be posted at a pay station kiosk at the NCA and on the BLM Roswell Field Office Web site.
