WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — The Daniel Boone National Forest is waiving fees at its recreation sites in honor of Veterans Day.

The fee waiver on Thursday applies to all forest-operated recreation sites, the agency said in a statement.

“Our public lands are one of the many treasures we have access to as American citizens,” Daniel Boone National Forest Recreation Officer Deb Schoenberg said. “While the day is fee-free for everyone, we want to issue a special invitation for our veterans and their families to come out and enjoy the Forest!”

There will be no fees for day use areas including boat ramps at Cave Run Lake and Laurel River Lake, as well as some shooting ranges, campgrounds and trails.
