The National Park Service collects Recreation Fees under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA). Recreation Fees provide a vital source of revenue for improving facilities and services for park visitors. That means that the money you spend when you buy an entry pass is being put to use inside Whiskeytown NRA to make the park—and your visit—better. Some improvements take place behind-the-scenes, others may be a direct part of your park experience. Either way, all of these projects are important to the continued preservation of your national parks. Thanks to all of you that have paid an entrance fee or bought a park pass at Whiskeytown NRA.
How Are Entrance Fees Used?
Your entrance fees support a wide variety of visitor services at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. Eighty percent of entrance fees, as well as camping and other fees, stay in Whiskeytown NRA to be used for improvements, repairs, and rehabilitation projects that directly affect visitors. The remaining 20 percent is shared among parks that cannot collect fees. Types of fee-funded projects include:
