USACE announces campground and day use fee increase in Green River Area

Louisville District
Published March 21, 2024
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District announces that recreation day use fees and camping fees will increase at select sites for the 2024 recreation season at the following lakes in the Green River Area, which includes Green River Lake in Campbellsville, Barren River Lake in Glasgow, Rough River Lake in Falls of Rough, and Nolin River Lake in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky. 
 
USACE conducted a review of its current fee structure last year, which determined that the fee changes are necessary to ensure USACE fees remain comparable and fair to those charged by other local providers for similar facilities and services, per policy.

“The fee increase is a necessary step as it brings us in line with other regional recreation opportunities provided by local, state, and private entities,” said Waylon Humphrey, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District Operations Division Chief, “The adjusted fee schedule is not only more comparable to surrounding facilities, but it also ensures we can continue providing clean, safe, family-friendly recreational amenities for the American public. We are committed to making this change as seamless as possible for our visitors and look forward to a great 2024 recreation season.”
 
The fee increase is effective immediately for all reservations for the 2024 season beginning on April 1, 2024, and thereafter. Existing reservations will be honored at the prior rate and reservations will not be impacted.
