Forest Service waives recreation fees for Veteran’s Day

WINCHESTER, Ky., Nov. 7, 2016 – In honor of Veterans Day, the Daniel Boone National Forest will waive fees at several recreation areas. The fee waivers apply to all forest visitors at designated locations.

On Friday, November 11 camping fees are waived at the following national forest locations:
• Red River Gorge - Powell, Menifee and Wolfe counties
• Koomer Ridge Campground - Wolfe County
• Barren Fork Horse Camp - McCreary County
• White Sulphur Horse Camp - Bath County
• Clear Creek Campground - Bath County
• Claylick Boat-in Campground – Rowan County
• Bee Rock Campground - Laurel County

In the Red River Gorge area, backcountry campers staying overnight on Friday are not be required to have a fee permit.   

Recreation fees will also be waived on Veterans Day at the following day-use areas:
• Redbird Crest Trail - Clay and Leslie counties
• White Sulphur ATV Trail – Bath County
• Clear Creek Shooting Range - Bath County
• Natural Arch Scenic Area – McCreary County
• Appletree Shooting Range - McCreary County
• Keno Shooting Range – Pulaski County

• Cave Run Lake boat ramps – Bath, Rowan and Menifee counties

Due to drought conditions and increased risk for wildfires, fire restrictions currently apply to the general forest area. Campfires and open flames are prohibited outside of designated recreation areas. In campgrounds and picnic areas where fire is permitted, the fire must be contained in existing metal fire rings or pedestal grills installed by the Forest Service. 

An open fire is not currently permitted in Red River Gorge dispersed recreation areas. In addition, fires are prohibited along trails, at shooting ranges, and at boat ramp locations.
