SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (Title VII, P.L. 108-447) directed the Secretary of Agriculture to publish a six month advance notice in the Federal Register whenever new recreation fee areas are established.

Once public involvement is complete, the proposal will be reviewed by the BLM Dakotas Resource Advisory Council prior to a final decision and implementation.

Jorgen's Hollow Campground is a destination campground for people visiting the Sheyenne National Grassland near Lisbon, North Dakota. The proposed fee for individual campsites are $10 per night; free dispersed camping would no longer be available at Jorgen's Hollow Campground. A market analysis of surrounding recreation sites with similar amenities indicates that the proposed fees are comparable and reasonable.
