HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Greers Ferry Project Office is automating and updating fee collections at several parks around the lake.
The project office used funds received through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to place cashless automated pay stations at several parks around the lake to protect visitors, volunteers, and staff.
Visitors can use a credit or debit card to purchase an annual pass or day/areas fees at the pay stations. A receipt will be issued upon payment. The receipt should be placed on your vehicle’s dashboard in a visible location. Visitors who purchase an annual pass should exchange their receipt for an annual pass hangtag within 14 days at any staffed park gatehouse.
In addition to collecting day use fees, some parks will begin collecting area use fees. These include Choctaw, Cove Creek, Dam Site Day Use, Devils Fork, John F. Kennedy and Old 25. The fees are used to recover a portion of the cost of administering, operating, maintaining, and improving the parks.
America the Beautiful pass holders will not be charged a day use fee, and the pass should be displayed on your vehicle’s dashboard. These passes may be purchased online at: https://store.usgs.gov/pass.
