The U.S. Forest Service will waive fees at day-use recreation sites in Oregon and Washington Nov. 11 and 12 in honor of Veterans Day.
In the Umpqua National Forest, day-use fees will be waived at trailhead parking areas for Umpqua Hot Springs, Howlock Mountain, Mt. Thielsen and North Crater; boat ramps at Diamond Lake’s South Shore and North End, and the day use area at South Umpqua Falls.
Fees are not waived at campgrounds or for cabin rentals.
“Perhaps by encouraging our veterans and other visitors to use the two free days to explore the Umpqua National Forest, they will discover a place where they can take time out for themselves,” said Umpqua Forest Supervisor Alice Carlton.
