White Mountain National Forest Proposes fee changes

NH1.com

CAMPTON — The White Mountain National Forest is seeking public comments on its proposal to increase the cost of daily and annual recreation passes, and eliminating weekly and household ones.

The goal is to realign fees to be more consistent with other sites offering the same services and facilities and enable more revenue to be used at recreation sites. Part of the plan calls for eliminating fees at nine trailheads.

The Forest Service is proposing to increase the cost of a daily recreation pass to $5 and an annual pass to $30.

Over 90 percent of the Forest passes sold are daily passes. Realigning the White Mountain Pass lowers overhead and operating expenses, freeing up more funds to support recreation facilities.

Comments are being accepted on the fee proposals until Sept. 30.
