Forest service waiving day-use fees for Presidents Day weekend

The public may visit many federal recreation day-use sites on the Presidents’ Day weekend holiday – Saturday, Feb. 15 through Monday, Feb. 17 – without paying a fee. The fee waiver is the second of four such days and two weekends offered by the Pacific Northwest Region of the U.S. Forest Service during 2014.

The fee-free day honors America’s presidents, especially George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, whose birthdays are Feb. 22 and Feb. 12 respectively.

The administrative fee waiver of recreation-use fees applies to federal recreation lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service. It does not apply to SnoParks although they might be located on national public lands. The SnoPark permit program is sponsored by the States of Oregon and Washington. Those using SnoParks that day must have SnoPark permits.
