Coronado National Forest seeks comments on Fee Proposal
The Coronado National Forest is looking at creating new fees and increasing existing fees for use of facilities at Parker Canyon Lake, Pena Blanca Lake, Riggs Flat Lake and a long list of other locations Forest wide.

Those of you that fish and participate in other outdoor activities on the Coronado National Forest should be aware of this.

Comments will be accepted through March 2018.

say no to fee hikes
Thanks, Don, as those of us who fish the Southern lakes have a bit to lose...there are no real services offered that are worth the proposed fees

Here is the email address:

I will mail in a letter to:

Fish Manager,

I hate paying fees for public land use when my tax dollars have been collected for the purpose of managing those areas.

Here is some advice for those who don't know, which could save a buck or two at fee areas. The Forest Service has a, "Golden Age" pass, which, when I bought mine a bunch of years ago, was ten dollars. Age requirement at that time was sixty-two years. It may have change and I'm sure the price has gone up.

The pass has paid for itself many time over because on some public lands, where fees are charged, there is either no fee or a reduced fee. For example, the pass enabled me, at no charge, to drive over Trail Ridge Road in Colorado. I don't recall the fee at that time. Also, the road to the top of Mount Evans (14,232' or so) west of Denver was charging ten bucks for access. I have fished some lakes on Evans a number of times and have never been charged because
of the pass. Outside Jacksonville, FL, there is an old fort overlooking a bay. I paid nothing to access this fee area.

There are other times when the pass has reduced a fee by one half.

I believe there is another federal pass offered by an agency.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 06:11 AM.
