Notice of Proposed New Fee Sites, Federal Lands Recreation
Enhancement Act (Title VIII, Pub. L. 108-447)

AGENCY: Willamette National Forest, Forest Service, USDA.

ACTION: Notice of Proposed New Fee Sites.


SUMMARY: The Willamette National Forest is planning to charge fees at
three recreation sites in 2008. All sites are undergoing reconstruction
or amenities are being added to improve services and experiences. Fees
are assessed based on the level of amenities and services provided,
cost of operation and maintenance and a market assessment. Funds from
fees will be used to help cover the cost of continued operation and
maintenance of these recreation sites.
    Three Pools Day Use Area, and Piety Island and Lost Lake
Campgrounds are currently fee free sites. New improvements have been
made at Piety Island Campground including: the establishment of 22
designated sites with tent pads, picnic tables and fire rings,
information boards, new toilets, and garbage service. The proposed fee
for Piety Island Campground, a boat-in site, is $10 per campsite and
$20 for a multiple site. New fire rings and picnic tables will be added
at Lost Lake Campground. Proposed fees for Lost Lake Campground is $8
per campsite and $4 for one extra vehicle.
    A $5 day use is being proposed at Three Pools Day Use Area.
Recreation passes would be honored and include Northwest Forest Pass,
Interagency Passes and Golden Passports. Reconstruction at this site
will begin in September of 2007 and includes paved parking for 100
vehicles, improved trails, information and interpretive signing, picnic
sites and site restoration.

DATES: New fees would begin after March 2008 and contingent upon
completion of improvements and Regional Forester Approval.
