National forest waives recreation fees for Veteran's Day

WINCHESTER, Ky., Nov. 6, 2017 – In honor of Veterans Day, all districts of the Daniel Boone National Forest will waive recreational use fees at several locations on Saturday, November 11. The fee waivers apply to all forest visitors at designated locations.

“In appreciation of our veterans, as well as those who are currently serving our great country, I am pleased that we can provide this opportunity for all citizens to come out and enjoy a free day in America’s great outdoors,” said Forest Supervisor Dan Olsen.

“Our veterans and their families deserve tremendous gratitude for the sacrifices they have made. On Veterans Day especially, I hope everyone finds a chance to personally thank a military veteran for their most honorable service.”

On the Cumberland Ranger District in the Cave Run Lake area, fees are waived at all boat ramps outside of developed campgrounds on Saturday. Camping is free at the White Sulphur Horse Camp, Clear Creek Campground, and Claylick Boat-in Campground. In addition, no day-use fee will be required at the White Sulphur ATV Trail or Clear Creek Shooting Range.

In the Red River Gorge area, no fee permit will be required for backcountry camping on national forest lands or at the Koomer Ridge Campground.   

At Laurel River Lake on the London Ranger District, no fee pass is required at any boat ramp. In addition, camping fees are waived at Bee Rock Campground along the scenic Rockcastle River. 

On the Stearns Ranger District, no day-use fee will be required at the Natural Arch Scenic Area or at the Appletree and Keno shooting ranges. No camping fee will be required for Saturday evening at the Barren Fork Horse Camp.

At the Redbird Ranger District, off-highway vehicle riders can enjoy a day of free use along the Redbird Crest Trail in Clay and Leslie counties.
