RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service says it’s waiving day-use and campground fees for a day in the Green Mountain and Finger Lakes National Forests in Vermont and New York.

The June 13 event is in recognition of the National Get Outdoors Day.

Forest Supervisor John Sinclair says the fee-free days are a way of thanking visitors while encouraging more people to enjoy the national forests.

The Forest Service says it expects to waive its fees several times during the 2015 season.

The only overnight campground fee that will not be waived, due to high maintenance costs, is that at the Hapgood Pond Campground in Peru, Vermont.
