Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, in partnership with Forever Resorts, will once again offer free patio boat tours of Whiskeytown Lake as part of the national Free Fee Weekend set for July 18-19, 2009.  The free patio boat tours will be offered throughout the day during this free weekend.  “We want to reinforce that national parks are places for everyone to have fun, reconnect with nature and history, and build a sense of ownership and stewardship toward parks and environment”, stated park superintendent, Jim Milestone. Reservations (530-242-3462) for this special tour will be taken starting Saturday, July 4th.

 

This is the second in a series of three summer weekends that the National Park Service will waive entrance fees and offer free patio boat tours.  The third and last free weekend is scheduled for August 15-16, 2009. Patio Boat reservations for the August 15-16 weekend will not be taken until Saturday, August 1.  “We want to once again acknowledge and thank Forever Resorts for their donation of the patio boat and providing a driver for these special tours,” concluded Milestone.
