BLM to waive fees on a few days this year

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), in conjunction with other agencies within the Department of the Interior, will waive recreation-related day-use fees for visitors to the National System of Public Lands for Martin Luther King, Jr., day (January 21); National Public Lands Day (September 28); and Veterans Day weekend (November 9 -11).

“Arizonans have long recognized the value of open space, and beauty of the public lands. Waiving fees a few days out of the year helps everyone have the opportunity to experience their public lands and develop a passion for them as others have.” said BLM Arizona State Director Raymond Suazo.

Site standard amenity and individual day-use fees at BLM recreation sites and areas will be waived for the specified dates. Other fees, such as overnight camping, cabin rentals, and group day-use, will remain in effect.

The sites will include Crossroads and Empire Landing campgrounds, Bullfrog Day-use Area, and the 87 Lake Havasu boat-in campsites.
