(CARLYLE, IL) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently announced that it will waive day use fees for veterans, active and reserve component service members and their families at the more than 2,800 USACE-operated recreation areas nationwide on Veterans Day Wednesday. Officials say the fee waiver requires only verbal confirmation of service. The waiver covers fees for boat launch ramps and swimming beaches. The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters. Other agencies that manage recreation areas on Army Corps of Engineers lands are encouraged, but not required, to offer the waiver in the areas that they manage.
