On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will waive day-use fees for veterans, active duty military personnel, reservists and their families at more than 2,400 recreation areas nationwide.
The day-use fee waiver requires only verbal confirmation of service. This waiver covers boat launch ramp and swim beach fees. The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters.
Other agencies that manage recreation areas on Corps land are encouraged, but not required, to offer the Veterans Day waiver of fees in the areas that they manage.
The Corps’ Tulsa District operates 38 projects in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas. For a list of the projects: www.swt.usace.army.mil/recreat/recreat.cfm.
