Camping Fees to Increase

After decades of no price changes, the Bureau of Land Management will increase overnight camping fees at six campgrounds in eastern Oregon. The new rate for the Page Springs, Fish Lake, Jackman Park, South Steens Family, South Steens Equestrian, and Chickahominy Reservoir campgrounds will be $16 per night for the first vehicle and $5 per night for each additional vehicle. The change will take effect on April 1st. The BLM Burns District uses 100% of the collected fees to support recreation; improved signage; campground road maintenance; site re-graveling; and picnic table and fire ring replacement and other local needs.
