These fees will be collected under partnership agreement on behalf of the Ministry of Forests Land and Natural Resource Operations and will be used to mitigate site abuse and offset the cost of providing this service. Fees will be collected from May to October Annually at a rate of $12.00/night ($6.00/night for seniors).
