Boat Launch Fees Waived For Veterans Day

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has announced that it will waive day use fees for veterans, active and reserve component service members, and their families at the area's Kentucky's Corps Lakes on Veterans Day, November 11.

The fee waiver requires only verbal confirmation of service.

The waiver covers fees for boat launch ramps. The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters.

USACE does not charge an entrance fee to access its parks. Other agencies that manage recreation areas on USACE lands are encouraged, but not required, to offer the waiver in the areas that they manage.

USACE is the nation’s largest federal provider of outdoor and water-based recreation. It’s estimated that 90 percent of the USACE-operated recreation areas are within 50 miles of metropolitan areas offering diverse outdoor activities for all ages close to home.
