SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (Title VII, Pub. 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. New fee sites proposed at $5 daily, $7 for three days, and $50 annually includes Bangor, Leatherwood, Clear Creek, Bee Rock and Craigs Creek boat ramps, Whitman Branch Shooting Range, and Billy Branch Group Picnic Site. Great Meadows Campground and S-Tree Campground are proposed at $15/night for a single site and $20/night for a double site. These sites will accept the suite of America the Beautiful, the National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands' (interagency) passes. Once public involvement is complete, these new fees will be reviewed by the Recreation Resource Advisory Committee prior to final decision and implementation.
