According to a release from the U.S. Forest Service the additional revenue would be used to create three new lookout areas and cabin rentals and to convert five small campgrounds into a large single-group camping facility, as well as to maintain current facilities and provide visitor services.
The RRSNF maintain that their fees have not budged in the past eight to ten years. The release states the proposed price adjustments would make their park more consistent with other National Forest Sites in the area.
The RRSNF is welcoming community input on the proposal. Details on upcoming public meetings have yet to be announced, but will be posted on their website here.
