NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 1, 2020) – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District announces that it will resume the collection of fees at its day use recreation areas beginning Oct. 8. Fee collections were suspended earlier this year when recreation areas were closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
The Nashville District collects fees at some of its day use parks and boat launching ramps. Fees are also collected for camping and for Special Use Permits, which covers events, facilities and activities.
