To commemorate Veterans Day, the Little Rock District of the Army Corps of Engineers will join Corps districts nationwide and waive day use fees at its recreation areas Monday, Nov. 11, for veterans, active, reserve and guard service members and their families.
Little Rock District lakes in Arkansas and Missouri include Beaver, Table Rock, Bull Shoals, Norfork, Clearwater, Greers Ferry, Nimrod, Blue Mountain, Millwood, Dierks, DeQueen and Gillham lakes, as well as the Arkansas River in Arkansas. This waiver includes boat launch ramp and swim beach fees. However, camping fees and reservation fees for special facilities, such as group picnic shelters, will not be waived.
“We began this initiative in 2006 to support and honor the men and women who have served our nation and the armed forces and to encourage them and their families to visit and enjoy one of our many recreational areas,” said James R. Hannon, chief of operations for the Army Corps of Engineers.
