EASTERN OREGON – (Information provided by the USDA) The USDA Forest Service will waive fees at day‐use recreation sites in Washington and Oregon on National Public Lands on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021.

The Forest Service offers several fee‐free days annually to encourage Americans to explore the outdoors and visit their public lands. Find more information at https://www.fs.usda.gov/visit/passes-permits. 

The fee waiver includes many Forest Service picnic areas, boat launches, trailheads, and visitor centers. Fees for camping, cabin rentals, or other permits still apply. Fees will continue to be charged at recreation sites operated by concessionaires unless the individual manager chooses to participate. 

We welcome visitors to our 17 National Forests in Washington and Oregon and ask the public to recreateresponsibly so we can maintain these opportunities for all to enjoy.
