U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announces changes in recreation day use fees

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Kansas City District announced today a change to recreation day use fees charged for boat launches and swimming beaches managed by USACE.  There is also a change to the USACE annual pass fee for these facilities.

This change to a simpler fee structure ensures that USACE fees remain comparable and fair to those charged by other local providers for similar facilities and services.  It is the first change to the fees since 2002.

Day use fees at Kansas City District facilities for 2016 are as follows:

*   A $5 day use fee per private non-commercial vehicle.

*   A $2 fee per adult for walk-in or bike-in visitors.

*   A $20 fee per bus or commercial vehicle.

*   No fee charged for children under the age of 16.

Payment of the day use fee entitles the user to launch a boat or use any designated swim beach at a USACE-operated recreation area for that day.

An annual day use pass is available for $40 and permits the holder and accompanying passengers the daily use of facilities managed by USACE for one calendar year.

The passes are for sale at Kansas City District Lake Offices and Visitor Centers.
