CAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest is seeking the public’s input on tentative plans to increase fees for 2017 recreation passes.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2aqekLE ) under the increase, the cost of a daily recreation pass would rise from $3 to $5 and the annual pass would go from $25 to $30. The Campton park would also eliminate its weekly and household pass options.

The federal proposal seeks to realign forest fees in order to be more consistent with others that offer the same services and facilities to guests.

More than 90 percent of passes sold at the forest are dailies.

Public comments will be accepted by White Mountain officials until Sept. 30.

The Eastern Region Recreation Resource Advisory Committee will review the proposal during their winter 2017 meeting.
