OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it will waive day-use fees for veterans, active and reserve component service members and their families at more than 2,400 Corps-operated recreation areas nationwide on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
The waiver will include areas managed by the Corps' Tulsa District. The Tulsa District operates 38 projects in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas.
The day-use fee waiver requires only verbal confirmation of service. It covers fees for boat launch ramps and swimming beaches but does not apply to camping and related services or fees for specialized facilities like group picnic shelters.
The Corps does not charge an entrance fee to its parks. Other agencies that manage recreation areas on Corps land are encouraged to offer the Veterans Day waiver of fees in areas they manage.
