Notice of Proposed New Fee Site.


The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest is proposing to charge fees at the Spring Mountains Visitor Gateway Complex new group picnic sites. These group picnic sites include a $70 fee per site, year around. During the summer months the sites can be reserved for $70 for a half day or $120 for all day. Fees are assessed based on the level of amenities and services provided, cost of operations and maintenance, and market assessment. 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 these picnic sites.

An analysis of the nearby federal and state group picnic sites with similar amenities shows that the proposed fees are reasonable and typical of similar sites in the area.


Comments will be accepted through September 1, 2014. New fees would begin spring of 2015.
