USDA Forest service hosts fee free days

  • Tuesday, June 10, 2014

The USDA Forest Service announced June 14 as its first fee-free day of the 2014 summer season. In honor of National Get Outdoors Day, fees will be waived at all day-use fee sites operated by the USDA Forest Service.

“Fee-free days offer the public an opportunity and incentive to experience scenic areas and recreational activities they might not have explored before,” said Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests Forest Supervisor Rick Lint.

On the Francis Marion National Forest day-use fees will be waived at Buck Hall boating and picnic area and on Wambaw Cycle Trail. On the Sumter National Forest fees will be waived at Fell, Lick Fork and Parsons Mountain day-use areas on the Long Cane Ranger District as well as on the Long Cane's Cedar Springs and Parsons Mountain OHV trails; and on Buncombe Horse Trail and Enoree OHV Trail on the Enoree Ranger District.

Use fees are not charged for 98 percent of national forests and grasslands.
