Fees waived at several camp and recreation sites around Arizona

With the summer winding down the Bureau of Land Management wants to make sure families have one more exciting weekend outdoors before the school year starts.

This weekend, August 14th and 15th, the BLM is waiving day fees to several campground and recreation areas around the state.

“For decades, millions of Americans have sought to connect with the outdoors by exploring National System of Public Lands, and the BLM is proud to be a part of the President’s America’s Great Outdoors initiative,” BLM Director, Bob Abbey says.

The BLM says while day fees will be waived, if you decide to camp overnight, rent a cabin or participate in a group day use you will be expected to pay fees surrounding those activities.

There are over 12 million acres of BLM Public Lands in Arizona, the areas waiving fees this weekend are:
