US Forest Service waiving fees in Vermont forest
RUTLAND (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service is waiving day-use and overnight camping fees in the Green Mountain National Forest as a way to get people outside.
The fees are being waived Saturday as part of the National Get Outdoors Day, which is dedicated to raising awareness about outdoor recreation and encouraging active and healthy lifestyles.
Camping and day use fees are generally collected in developed campsites on the 400,000-acre Green Mountain National Forest to support maintenance of forest recreation facilities.
The Forest Service does not charge for access to 98 percent of its land in Vermont.
