Huron-Manistee National Forests waive fees for National Public Lands Day

CADILLAC, Mich. — The USDA Forest Service will waive fees at most day-use recreation sites in the Huron-Manistee National Forests on Saturday, September 26 in celebration of National Public Lands Day.

Hikers, paddlers, and other outdoor enthusiasts will have free access to some of the forests’ most popular recreation sites, including:

The National Public Lands Day fee waiver does not apply to:

  • Camping fees;
  • Day-use fees at open sites in the Manistee National Forest that are managed by concessionaire American Land and Leisure.

The Forest Service will offer one additional fee-free opportunity in 2020:

  • November 11 – Veterans Day

The fee waivers are made possible by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. Other federal land management agencies, including the National Park Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, determine their own fee waiver schedules.
