Fee-free day on the Willamette National Forest for National Public Lands Day

One-day fee waiver does not apply to permits, campgrounds and cabins, or some expanded-amenity and concessionaire-managed sites.

 

Springfield, Ore., Sept. 21, 2022 — The Willamette National Forest celebrates National Public Lands Day with a fee-free day on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022. This 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.

Visitors can enjoy fee-free access to all Forest Service-managed sites where day-use fees are normally charged. In addition to offering fee-free access, some locations will host special celebrations and educational activities. National Public Lands Day is also celebrated with many volunteer events to “give back together” on National Forests and other public lands. For more information about National Forests in the Pacific Northwest, visit our regional website at https://www.fs.usda.gov/r6.

National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest single-day of volunteer activities. The day recognizes the immeasurable recreation and conservation value of America’s public lands. Across the United States in 2021, 46,227 volunteers participated in 536 events, contributing 185,108 hours of their time, which was valued at an estimated $5 million. You can learn more about this special holiday on the National Environmental Education Foundation’s National Public Lands Day page.

Visitors should “Know Before You Go” as fire area closures from this year and last year remain in effect. Please be aware of current restrictions before you head out and share current information with others who may be unaware of the restrictions.
