(KDKZ-TV)The Army Corps of Engineers, Little Rock District announced that it will waive day use fees normally charged at boat launch ramps and swimming beaches at its recreation areas in recognition of National Public Lands Day, Saturday, Sept. 22.

The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters.

In addition, volunteers who participate in one of the Corps’ National Public Lands Day activities will be issued a fee-free coupon if the volunteer site is participating in the coupon program. Volunteers should check with their local Corps’ project office for more information. The fee-free coupon is valid for one year from the date of issue and may be used for one day of entrance or day use fees at any participating federal agency’s park, forest or recreation area that charges either of these types of fees.
