Veteran's Day Weekend Fee Free at BLM recreation sites

BLM Announces “Fee-Free” Weekend at Recreation Sites

Lake Havasu City, Ariz. – To celebrate Veterans Day, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Colorado River District will be waiving entrance fees to local recreation sites.  The fee-free designation applies to Veterans Day holiday weekend, November 10 - 12, 2012.

“These fee-free days will provide a great opportunity to visit a new area and explore the wonder of your public lands,” stated District Manager Roxie Trost.  “This is also a great way to help some folks, who might otherwise not have the opportunity, to experience their public lands and develop a passion for them as others have.”

Recreation areas in the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Colorado River District that will be free include the following sites.

Yuma Field Office – Squaw Lake Campground and Boat Launch, Senator Wash Boat Ramp and Day-Use Area, Senator Wash North Shore Campground, Senator Wash South Shore Campground, Oxbow Recreation and Wildlife Area, and Ehrenberg Sandbowl Off-Highway Vehicle Area
Kingman Field Office – Burro Creek, Wild Cow Springs, and Windy Point Recreation Sites
Lake Havasu Field Office – Crossroads and Empire Landing Campgrounds, Bullfrog Day-Use Area, and the 87 Lake Havasu Campsites

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

**Just a reminder that Betty’s Kitchen Watchable Wildlife Area just north of Yuma, Arizona, continues to be closed due to the Laguna Fire that burned through the area in May 2011.
