Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (FLREA)

We participate in the Congressionally-authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (FLREA). Recreation fees collected under FLREA are reinvested into the parks to benefit the visitor through addressing deferred maintenance and enhancing the visitor experience. In many parks, 80-percent of the recreation fees remain at the site where collected, the other 20-percent is used at parks where fees are not collected or for youth corps programs. Voyageurs National Park is an exception because the park collects under the established $500,000 threshold, allowing us to keep 96-percent of the fees collected within the park.

Current Ongoing Projects

  • Campsite maintenance and salaries
  • Boats on Interior Lakes repair and purchases
  • Interpretive publications and information
