L. 108–447) Fremont-Winema National Forests, USDA Forest Service. ACTION: Notice of proposal to implement camping fees at full service campgrounds, and to increase camp fees at existing fee sites. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SUMMARY: The Fremont-Winema National Forests are planning to start charging fees at ten recreation campground sites, and increase camp fees at three existing fee sites and five recreation cabin rentals. The Forest is committed to responsibly serving the public by efficiently operating and, when necessary, modifying the services to ensure developed recreation sites are managed to health and safety standards, and provide recreation opportunities strategically across the Forests. As demographics change and new challenges are presented, it is the Forest’s responsibility to respond and ensure that appropriate recreation services and facilities are available to the public. Fees are assessed based on the level of amenities and services provided, cost of operation and maintenance, market assessment and public comment. The fees listed are only proposed and will be determined upon further analysis and public comment. Funds from fees would be used for the continued operation and maintenance of these recreation sites. Aspen Cabin, Bald Butte Lookout, Currier Guard Station, Drake Peak Lookout and Hager Mountain Lookout will continue to be available for overnight rental. The facilities are currently available for rent at either $25 or $30 per night. A financial analysis is being completed to determine the appropriate rental fee to cover operating expenses. Future fees may range between $40 and $50 per night. Lookout and forest cabin rentals offer a unique experience and are a widely popular offering on National Forests. Fees would continue to help protect and maintain lookout and cabin rentals and their historic integrity. The fee structure at Digit Point Campground is proposed to change from the required $10.00 per campsite plus $5.00 for an extra vehicle for overnight use to $12.00 per campsite plus $5.00 for an extra vehicle. A fee of $5.00 per campsite is proposed when the water system is no longer active, primarily in the spring and fall. The fee structure at Williamson River Campground is proposed to change from $6.00 per campsite plus $2.00 for an extra vehicle for overnight use to $10.00 per campsite plus $4.00 for an extra vehicle. The fee structure at East Bay Campground is proposed to change from $8.00 per campsite plus $2.00 for an extra vehicle for overnight use to $10.00 per campsite plus $4.00 for an extra vehicle.
