Saturday, September 28, 2019 is National Public Lands Day and in response the US Army Corps of Engineers announced that it will waive daily use fees normally charged at boat launch ramps and swimming beaches nation-wide.

In addition, volunteers who participate in one of USACE's National Public Lands Day activities will be issued a fee-free coupon if the volunteer site is participating in the coupon program. Volunteers should check with their local USACE project for more information.

The fee-free coupon is valid for one year from date of issue and may be used for one day of entrance or day use fees at any participating federal agency's park, forest or recreation area that charges either of these types of fees.

The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters.

Other agencies and partners that manage recreation areas located on USACE lands are encouraged, but not required, to comply with this waiver of day use fees in the areas they manage.
