The Department of Interior has recently determined that areas that operate with amenity fees under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA) can collect fees and operate during a lapse of appropriations.
Red Rock Canyon is one of these sites, and Southern Nevada Conservancy, the cooperating association for the national conservation area, operates the fee station and collects the amenity fee services for the BLM.
100% of the amenity fees collected are reinvested back into to Red Rock Canyon and allows the BLM to continue with providing a quality visitor experience, perform necessary repairs and maintain our facilities and parking areas, provide law enforcement and public safety, and manage and preserve Red Rock’s natural, cultural, and aesthetic resources which are important to the visiting public and local community.
During the federal government shutdown, updates will be posted at here about the impact on Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area as they are made public.
