Mendocino National Forest to Waive Recreation Fees for Martin Luther King Jr. Day
WILLOWS, Calif. – The Mendocino National Forest is bringing in the New Year by offering a fee-free day at all Forest Service run campgrounds and the Red Bluff Boat Launch in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 18, 2016.
The fee waiver program is in cooperation with other federal land management agencies under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. “These fee-free days help encourage visitors to come out and see our Forest. With the recent designation of the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument, this is a great chance to get out and see what exciting and unique opportunities await,” said Forest Supervisor Ann Carlson. “These lands belong to all of us, and we want to thank visitors for their continued support and remind them that this is a place to have fun!”
As a reminder, the Upper Lake Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) trails remain closed due to high saturation levels. Visitors are encouraged to check trail conditions by visiting our website or calling the Upper Lake OHV message line at 707-275-1430. With recent wet weather, and more on the way, forest roads may have been impacted. If you come across an area where the road is compromised or washed out, please report it to Forest Engineer Shannon Pozas at 530-934-3316.
For a list of campgrounds and other recreational opportunities, please contact the Mendocino National Forest at 530-934-3316 or visit www.fs.usda.gov/mendocino. Get the latest updates and alerts easily by following us on Twitter, @MendocinoNF.
