Recreation Day Use Fee and Camping Fee Waiver for Active Service Military Personnel and DoD Civilians in Support of Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO)
Day use and camping fees will be waived for active service military personnel and DoD civilians who are on mid- or post-deployment (reintegration) leave from duty in a hostile fire zone to include Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and other deployments to support the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO).
Active service military personnel and DoD civilians on leave will be required to show identification and leave orders/forms upon arrival to the recreation sites to obtain the waiver. The waiver will also apply to all immediate family members accompanying them on their visit.
The waiver will be applied to day use and camping fees. Fees will be waived on a walk-up and space available basis, as well as for reservations made through the National Recreation Reservation Service call center at: 1-877-444-6777.
However, fees will not be waived for on-line reservations made through Recreation.gov.
