    Manti-La Sal National Forest Proposes Recreation Fees

	PRICE, UT - Recreation managers on the Manti-La Sal National Forest
are interested in hearing your comments on a proposal to charge fees
at one new group site and three single family campsites at Miller Flat
Campground.  
Ferron/Price Ranger District: Miller Flat, a loop within the Lake
Canyon Recreation Area is adding three new sites that would charge $5
per vehicle per night for a single family campsite and $50 for the
group site which is identical to fees charges at other sites in Lake
Canyon Recreation Area. 

	"We recognize how important these sites are to our local communities
and those who use the sites," said Bill Broadbear, Manti-La Sal
recreation program manager.  "These fees will help us maintain the new
and improved sites to the level and quality people have come to
expect."  

	All fee proposals will be presented before a citizen's advisory
committee, Utah BLM Recreation Resource Advisory Committee (RRAC). 
Committee members represent a broad array of recreation interest
groups to help ensure that the Forest Service is proposing reasonable
and publicly acceptable fee changes.  Committee members will help
ensure that the Forest Service addresses public issues and concerns
about recreation fees.  The public is welcome to attend and comment at
all advisory committee meetings.  The next RRAC meeting is expected to
be held the winter of 2013, the exact meeting time, location and
agenda will be announced on forest website and through local media.
These fee proposals will also have extensive reviews by both the
Forest Service Regional and Washington Offices.

	In 2004, Congress passed the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act
which allows the Forest Service to keep 95 percent of fees collected
at certain recreation sites and use these funds locally to operate and
maintain and improve these sites.

	Most recreation opportunities on Forest Service-managed lands are
free. The Forest Service manages about 20,800 developed or primitive
recreation sites, of which about 4,000 currently charge fees under the
Recreation Enhancement Act. Of those sites charging fees more than 60
percent are campgrounds and lookout/cabin rentals.

	The sites at Miller Flat may be reserved.  Visitors wanting to use
them must make reservations via toll free number (877) 444-6777 or
online at www.recreation.gov

	For more information, questions or comments about these fee proposals
please contact: Bill Broadbear, Ferron/Price and Sanpete Recreation
Program Manager, (435) 636-3516 or email at bbroadbear@fs.fed.us.  All
comments should be sent to Bill Broadbear, Manti-La Sal National
Forest, 599 West Price River Drive, Price, Utah  84501 by October 31,
2012.

	Further information about the entire fee proposal is located on the
forest website: http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/mantilasal/; or by
contacting Ann King, Public Service Group Leader (435) 636-3535 or
email at aking@fs.fed.us.
