New Campground Fees on Mendocino National Forest
« on: January 17, 2009, 11:21:38 PM »
Willows, November 7, 2008 - Beginning November 15, the Mendocino National Forest will start charging fees at several campgrounds and recreation sites.

On the Grindstone Ranger District, sites at the Dixie Glade, Fouts, Little Stony, Mill Creek, North Fork and South Fork campgrounds will be $5 per night. A $6 per launch fee will be implemented at the Sacramento River Boat Launch at Lake Red Bluff.

On the Upper Lake Ranger District, sites at the Oak Flat Campground at Lake Pillsbury will be $5 per night. Sites at Penny Pines and Deer Valley campgrounds will be $6 per night.

On the Covelo Ranger District, sites at the Howard Lake, Howard Meadows and Little Doe campgrounds will be $6 per night.

"The Mendocino National Forest is committed to providing high quality recreation facilities and opportunities to Forest Visitors," said Recreation Officer Tricia Christofferson. "Ninety-five percent of the fees charged at developed recreation sites like these remain on the Forest and are spent operating, maintaining and improving public recreation facilities. By charging nominal fees at these developed recreation sites, we will be able to continue to offer services and improvements at these sites."

For more information, please contact the Forest at (530) 934-3316 or visit www.fs.fed.us/r5/mendocino.
