Tonto National Forest offers fee-free weekend

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tonto National Forest is joining other federal agencies in offering a fee-free from Nov. 9 through Nov. 11.

Day use fees are waived in honor of Veterans' Day.

"Your national forests and grasslands are a bargain any day of the year, but even more so on fee-free days," said U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. "Whether you stay for a few hours or a few days, your public lands are some of the best travel bargains in the nation."

Day-use fees will be waived at all standard amenity fee sites operated by the forest for these listed dates. Camping and campground fees are not waived.

During all other times, the Tonto Pass is required at more than 50 recreation sites including Salt and Verde River locations, boat launch ramps, swimming areas, day use areas, and campgrounds.

A list of Tonto Pass vendor locations is available at the Tonto National Forest website:
