The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District has announced that it will resume the collection of fees at its day use recreation areas beginning Oct. 8th. This includes facilities on J. Percy Priest Lake in Rutherford County and other neighboring areas.
Fee collections were suspended earlier this year when recreation areas were closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
The Corps of Engineers collects fees at some of its day use parks and boat launching ramps. Fees are also collected for camping and for Special Use Permits, which covers events, facilities and activities.

While visiting USACE recreation areas, visitors are encouraged to practice social distancing and other COVID-19 safety precautions required and recommended by local, state and federal authorities, to include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
