Notice of proposed new fee site.
The Salmon-Challis National Forest is proposing to charge fee at the Copper Basin Guard Station. This cabin includes a $100/night fee and would be available for rental from June 1 to September 30. Fees are proposed based on the level of amenities and services provided, cost of operations and maintenance, and market assessment. The fee will be determined upon further analysis and public comment. An analysis of nearby rental cabins with similar amenities shows that the proposed fees are reasonable and typical of similar sites in the area. Funds from fees would be used for the continued operation and maintenance and improvements of these rental cabins.
Comments will be accepted through August 1, 2015. New fees would begin May 2016.
