SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The planning area for the 5,060-acre North Platte River Recreation Area Management Plan (Plan) includes parcels of public land within the SRMA boundary from the Prospect Creek confluence to Seminoe Reservoir covering 110 river miles. Approximately 10 percent of the surface area is public land with the remainder predominantly private and State lands. The Corral Creek Campground is within the SRMA approximately 33 miles northeast of the Encampment, Wyoming, and is a popular recreation site for both day-use and overnight visits. The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (REA), 16 U.S.C. 6801–6814, authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to establish, modify, charge and collect recreation fees at specified categories of Federal recreation lands and waters. The REA also contains specific provisions addressing public involvement when establishing recreation fees. The authority of the Secretary to carry out these provisions expires 11 years after December 8, 2005 (16 U.S.C. 6809 amended). The public involvement PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 provisions of the REA include a requirement that Recreation Resource Advisory Committees or councils be given opportunities to make recommendations regarding the establishment of recreation fees. In Wyoming, the Recreation Action Team (REACT) fulfills the public involvement requirements of the REA. REACT is comprised of State and Federal land management agencies that meet regularly to discuss issues of interest to recreationists in the State. REACT also reviews all fee increase proposals on all State and Federal Government sites in Wyoming. The Corral Creek Campground qualifies as a site where visitors can be charged an Expanded Amenity Fee in accordance with REA criteria at 43 U.S.C. 6802(g)(2). The BLM completed the North Platte River Recreation Area Management Plan and Environmental Assessment Decision Record on September 24, 2013, and fulfilled REA requirements, involved the public, and gathered input on the fee proposal and alternatives. The Plan addresses the following: (1) Visitor use density; (2) River access issues and the establishment of a new campground; (3) Pursuit of a campground fee and improvements; (4) Special Recreation Permit allocations and limits; and (5) Resource impacts caused by peak visitor use on public lands along the North Platte River. Mitigation and reclamation for approved projects in the Plan have been designed to positively benefit social and environmental conditions. The BLM has already analyzed the potential impacts of implementing a campground fee, and considered necessary mitigations in the North Platte River Recreation Area Management Plan and Environmental Assessment. Therefore, establishment of the campground fee would be an administrative action implementing the Sept. 24, 2013 Decision Record. In accordance with BLM policy, the Rawlins Field Office has prepared a business plan that explains the fee collection process for the Corral Creek Campground and how the fees would be used. The proposed fee structure includes the implementation of a $10 fee for each overnight stay per campsite at the campground. No fees would be charged for extra vehicles. New fees would be used to supplement the appropriated recreation maintenance and operations budget and diversify funding for watershed restoration, habitat, soils, environmental interpretation/education and other projects which would benefit the Corral Creek Recreation Site. Within the SRMA, the BLM has charged Expanded Amenity fees of $10 for overnight E:\FR\FM\29AUN1.SGM 29AUN1
