PORTLAND — The USDA Forest Service will waive fees at day-use recreation sites in Oregon and Washington on Nov. 11 in honor of Veterans Day.

“This fee waiver is one small way of thanking and honoring our nation’s veterans,” said Glenn Casamassa, Pacific Northwest Regional Forester. “We hope this fee-free day will encourage veterans, their families and all Americans to visit their national forests and enjoy the many benefits these public lands provide.”

The fee waiver includes many picnic areas, boat launches, trailheads and visitor centers. Fees for camping, cabin rentals, heritage expeditions or other permits still apply. Fees will continue to be charged at recreation sites operated by concessionaires unless the individual manager chooses to participate.
