SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 87585 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Scaredman Recreation Site (T. 25S., R. 1W., Sec. 24) is located north of the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway on Canton Creek Road (BLM Road 24–1– 31). Under Section 3(g) of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA), the Scaredman Recreation Site area will qualify, as is, as a site wherein visitors can be charged an ‘‘Expanded Amenity Recreation Fee.’’ Visitors wishing to use the expanded amenities that exist at the site would purchase a recreation use permit as described at 43 CFR part 2930. Pursuant to FLREA and implementing regulations at 43 CFR Subpart 2933, fees may be charged for overnight camping where specific amenities and services are provided. Specific visitor fees will be identified and posted at the site. Fees must be paid at the self-service pay station located at the camping areas. People holding the America the Beautiful—Senior Pass and/or Access Pass will be entitled to a 50 percent fee reduction on overnight fees. The Scaredman Recreation site is a semi-primitive campground on Canton Creek in a semi-remote area. Canton Creek Road is 40 miles east of Roseburg off of the Rogue-Umpqua National Scenic Byway (Highway 138). Scaredman provides 10 individual tent campsites, drinking water, vault toilets, refuse containers, fire rings, a campground host and reasonable visitor protection. There are several undeveloped water play areas to enjoy along Canton Creek and Steamboat Creek. Fly fishing is available 3 miles south on the North Umpqua River. This recreation site is the only one in the Roseburg District that provides such amenities and recreation opportunities and that does not currently charge a fee. In the past years, prior to 2013, it has been used heavily because it is the only ‘‘free’’ campground in the area. The likely recreation season for Scaredman will be from mid-May through midOctober. Camping fees will be $10.00/per site, per night, which would be consistent with other established fee sites in the area including other BLM-administered sites in the area and those overnight sites managed by the Umpqua National Forest and Douglas County Parks Department. Future adjustments in the fees charged could be made in accordance with the Roseburg District Business Plan for recreation sites and with concurrence from the Southwest Oregon Resource Advisory Council (SWOR RAC). The Bureau of Land Management, Roseburg District has notified and involved the public about the proposal to collect fees and the E:\FR\FM\05DEN1.SGM 05DEN1
