Start Preamble


White Mountain National Forest, USDA Forest Service.




The White Mountain National Forest proposes to add Zealand Picnic Area to the Recreation Fee Program. The White Mountain Pass, which covers 27 day use sites on the Forest, will also cover Zealand Picnic Area in the pass. Fees are determined based on the level of amenities and services provided, cost of operation, maintenance, and market assessment. Funds from fees will be used for the continued operation and maintenance of the sites.

National recreation passes such as the Interagency Annual Pass, Senior Pass, Access Pass, or White Mountain National Forest Annual Pass would be valid for day use fees at these sites.


Comments on the proposal will be accepted through October 11, 2016. Fees for Zealand Picnic Area will go into effect spring of 2017 pending a recommendation from the Eastern Region Recreation Resource Advisory Committee (RRAC).


Forest Supervisor, White Mountain National Forest, 71 White Mountain Drive, Campton, NH 03223.
