The Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (Title VII, Pub. L. 108-447) directed the Secretary of Agriculture to publish a six month advance notice in theFederal Registerwhenever new recreation fee areas are established. The Caribou-Targhee National Forest currently has over 40 other developed campgrounds. These campgrounds are well used and are very popular during the summer and fall seasons. A business analysis of this campground/picnic area has shown that people desire having this sort of developed recreation experience on the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. A market analysis indicates that the $40 group fee (up to a maximum of 100 people) per night is both reasonable and acceptable for this type of recreation experience.
