The Bureau of Land Management is waiving recreation day-use fees for visitors on Saturday in celebration of Veterans Day.

The BLM recognizes and honors veterans' contributions to our nation and invites visitors to explore the unique and diverse natural landscapes and facilities found on America's public lands.

Barry Bushue, BLM Oregon and Washington State Director, said he's thrilled to honor and celebrate veterans across the nation with a fee-free day for everyone. It's the last of BLM's fee-free days of 2023.

Within Oregon and Washington, the BLM's standard amenity day-use fees will be waived locally at Hyatt Lake Recreation Area. The standard amenity fee waiver does not apply to any expanded amenity fees for overnight camping, group day-use, cabin rentals or individual Special Recreation Permit fees along rivers.

You can search all available BLM recreation opportunities to explore on your public lands at "blm.gov.visit."

Know before you go. Practice "Leave No Trace" principles and leave your public lands cleaner than you found them. When you recreate responsibly, you care for one another and the places we play.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 western states including Alaska.
