Wayne National Forest to Waive User Fees on Four Weekends This Summer, Fall
Posted on: 03/11/2013
By  Mike Cullums
Wayne National Forest supervisor Anne Carey announced this morning that the Forest will offer four recreation fee waiver weekends during summer and fall of 2013. 
The special recognition days, fee waiver dates, and applicable recreation sites are as follows:
    National Trails Day - Fri. May 31 & Sat. June 1 - Trails only
    National Get Outdoors Day - Fri. June 7 & Sat. June 8 - All recreation sites and trails
    National Public Lands Day - Fri. Sept. 27 & Sat. Sept. 28 - All recreation sites and trails
    Veterans Day Weekend - Sat. Nov. 9 through Mon. Nov. 11 - Trails only
Recreation sites include campgrounds, picnic shelters, and swim areas, including sites that are reservable through the National Recreation Reservation System (NRRS) at http://www.recreation.gov/
A $9.00 reservation fee remains in effect for those reserving recreation sites online.  
One of the favorite attractions on the Wayne is the 360+ miles of multiple-use trails, which include horse, all-terrain vehicle (ATV), off-highway motorcycle (OHM), mountain bike, and hiking trails.  Trail permits are required to ride ATV, OHM, mountain bike, and horse trails during the open season (April 15 through December 15), with exception of designated “fee-free” days.  Trail permits go on sale beginning April 1.  
Carey says “'Fee Free' days are a great way to experience a sense of adventure in the great outdoors, promote healthy living, and create lasting memories with family and friends.”
The 241,000 acre Wayne National Forest offers a variety of recreation opportunities, including camping, picnicking, fishing, hunting, nature viewing, canoeing, and much more.
