Where do recreation fees go and how are they used?

Recreation fees support the Grasslands ability to continue providing high levels of service to visitors at popular recreation sites.  The Grasslands have made major investments to several sites such as water system upgrades, road improvements, new toilet buildings and accessible picnic tables, fire rings, and pathways.  Reasonable fees paid by users of these sites and services help ensure that the Grasslands can continue maintaining and improving the sites for future generations.  

With your help, we can protect our natural resources for future generations. Thank you!
