Proposed Camping Fee Increase

Posted:

The National Park Service is proposing an increase in camping fees at Chickasaw National Recreation Area. If approved, these new fee rates will go into effect in the spring of 2010.  Before implementing this proposed change to camping fees, the park is soliciting input from the public.

The proposed camping fees would be an increase of $2.00 for individual sites and $6.00 for group sites. 
Lakeview premium campsites with electric utility hook-ups will be $24.00 per night.
(Buckhorn Loop D #24, 25, 26 & Loop C #4, 5, 6, 7 and the Point #20, 21, 22, 23, 24)
Campsites with electric utility hook-ups will be $22.00 per night.
(Buckhorn and the Point Campgrounds, and one site at Rock Creek Campground)
Campsites without electric utility hook-ups will be $16.00 per night at the Buckhorn and the Point Campgrounds.
Campsites without electric utility hook-ups will be $14.00 per night at the Cold Springs, Guy Sandy, & Rock Creek Campgrounds.
All group campsites will be $30.00 per night.
(Rock Creek, Cold Springs & Central Campgrounds)

One hundred percent of the camping fees collected are returned to Chickasaw National Recreation Area where they provide direct benefits to our visitors.  The fee increase will cover increased utility costs for electricity, and provide additional revenue which will be applied to our highest priority visitor needs.  These funds have been, and will continue to be, used for maintenance, repair projects, public service programs, signage, and natural and historical resource preservation.
