The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Tulsa District announced Monday that it will waive day use fees for veterans, active and reserve service members and their families at Tulsa District USACE-operated recreation areas on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. The fee waiver requires only verbal confirmation of service. The waiver covers fees for boat launch ramps and swimming beaches. The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters. USACE does not charge an entrance fee to access its park. Other agencies that manage recreation areas on USACE lands are encouraged, but not required, to offer the waiver in the areas they manage. Earl Groves, the Tulsa District Chief of Operations, said, "The waiver is a small token of appreciation for our veterans, active and reserve service members and their families and an invitation to come out to one of the many Tulsa District lakes to enjoy the day in the great outdoors free of charge."
