The proposed fee for overnight camping will be $15 per site per night for all non-group site camping. Group site overnight fees will be $75. Interagency Senior Passes will be accepted for individual overnight camping. An analysis of the nearby Federal and state recreation offerings with similar amenities shows that the proposed fees are reasonable and typical of similar sites in the area. Funds from fees will be used for the continued operation, maintenance, and improvements of the reservoir area recreation amenities and related programs.
The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (Title VII, Pub. L. 108-447) directed the Secretary of the Interior to publish a 6-month advance notice in the Federal Register whenever new recreation fee areas are established. Once public involvement is complete, these new fees will be reviewed by the Bureau of Reclamation Mid-Pacific Regional Director prior to a final decision and implementation. People wanting to reserve these recreation sites would need to do so through the National Recreation Reservation Service at www.recreation.gov, or by calling 1-877-444-6777 when it becomes available.
