Notice of Proposed New Fee Site.


The National Forests in Alabama are proposing to charge a new fee at the Conecuh Shooting Range. Fees are assessed based on the level of amenities and services provided, cost of operation and maintenance, market assessment and public comment. Funds from fees would be used for the continued operation and maintenance of this shooting range including lead abatement, berm maintenance, and removal of shell casings and debris. The proposed new fees to help maintain this site would be: $5 per person per day and $50 for an annual permit.


Send any comments about these fee proposals by August 15, 2019, so comments can be compiled, analyzed and shared with a Recreation Resource Advisory Committee. New fees would begin after December 2019.
