The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is changing the fees it charges for special recreation permits outside of developed recreation sites. BLM is announcing the changes in the Federal Register of Monday, March 3.

The new fee schedule applies to “commercial, competitive and organized group activities.”

Effective immediately, the minimum commercial special recreational fee will total $105 per year. The minimum for competitive and organized group activities comes to $5 per person per day. The minimum for an assigned site will come to $210.

The BLM adjusts fees every three years. The BLM last adjusted fees on March 1, 2011. The next fee adjustment is scheduled for March 1, 2017.

Fees are changed to keep pace with inflation while trying to stay competitive. Commercial and reserved site fees are rounded to the nearest $5; competitive and group fees are rounded to the nearest dollar.

States retain the right to charge application fees or establish higher minimums for recreation fees.
