“Our public lands are open to everyone, and we hope these free days offer an incentive to all people to visit any of the 193 million acres of land held in trust for their enjoyment and use,” U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell said.
No fees are charged at any time on 98 percent of national forests and grasslands. Approximately two-thirds of developed recreation sites in national forests and grasslands can be used for free.
