Corps-Managed Parks to Increase Fees

BRANSON, MO - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it will cost a little more to get into Table Rock Lake beginning April 1.

Entrance fees will go from $2 to $4 per vehicle per day.  People entering on foot will pay $1 per person, per day.

The fees will be charged at the following corps-managed parks: Moonshine Beach, Indian Point, Cape Fair, Aunt's Creek, Mill Creek, Baxter, Old Highway 86, Long Creek, Cricket Creek, Viola, Viney Creek, Campbell Point, Big M and Eagle Rock.

The fee will not be charged to marina customers or slip-holders.

The corps says the new fees will help defray the costs of maintaining the parks.
