Lanier, Allatoona day-use fees waived for Veterans Day

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced it will waive day-use fees Sunday and Monday, Nov. 11-12, in observation of Veterans Day at more than 2,800 recreational facilities it operates including Lake Lanier and Allatoona Lake in North Georgia.

In announcements posted to Army Corps Facebook pages for Lanier and Allatoona, the agency said the waiver covers fees for boat launch ramps and swimming beaches. It does not apply to camping and camping-related services or fees for specialized facilities, such as group picnic shelters, or events.

The Army Corps has a Veterans Day tradition of honoring active, reserve and veteran service personnel with an invitation to enjoy a USACE recreational facility free of charge, and this year it is extending the privilege to all visitors, said Col. Sebastien P. Joly, commander of corps’ Mobile District.

The district manages more than a half-million acres of land and water at 12 projects in Georgia, Alabama, Florida and Mississippi. Information:
