Your Dollars At Work
The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (2004) is successor legislation to the Recreation Fee Demonstration Program (Fee Demo - 1996) that allows the National Park Service and other agencies to retain and use the fees paid by the public at certain designated units within these agencies. Prior to Fee Demo, most fees collected by parks were returned to the U.S. Government General Treasury fund. Each year, approximately 20% of the funds collected the prior year were returned to the parks that collected them.
