Recreation Fees Waived During Veterans Day Weekend

Hells Canyon Scenic Byway > Alerts > Recreation Fees Waived During Veterans Day Weekend

The U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are waiving fees at most day-use recreation sites over Veterans Day weekend, Nov. 9-11, in honor of U.S. veterans and members of the U.S. armed forces. This includes entry to the BLM’s National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center near Baker City.

People who have not visited the Trail Center in a while or who might not normally visit our beautiful public lands are encouraged to get out and enjoy the wide range of recreational and educational benefits our lands offer.

The fee waiver is a small, but special way to express our gratitude and appreciation for U.S. veterans, members of the U.S. armed forces and their families.

The waiver of entrance and/or standard amenity fees applies to public recreation lands under the management of the BLM and U.S. Forest Service, along with the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service the Bureau of Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
