Louisville, Ky. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will waive day use fees at Corps operated boat ramps for veterans, active duty service members and their families at its recreation areas nationwide on Saturday, Nov. 11.
Louisville District Corps lakes sites are in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky:
Indiana: J. Edward Roush, Salamonie, Mississinewa, C. M. Harden, Cagles Mill, Monroe, Brookville, Patoka
Ohio: C.J. Brown, Caesar Creek, William H. Harsha, West Fork
Kentucky: Cave Run, Carr Creek, Buckhorn, Taylorsville, Green River, Barren River, Nolin, Rough River.
“Our intent is to honor and support the men and women who have served our nation in the armed services,” said Col. Raymond Midkiff, Louisville District Commander.
Other agencies that manage recreation areas located at Corps lakes may also participate - but are not required - to comply with this Veterans Day waiver of day use fees in the areas they manage.
While waiving day use fees, the Corps also encourages all others to enjoy America's public lands and waters. Louisville District lakes provide local flood protection and outdoor recreation.
