Visitors to the San Bernardino National Forest will not have to pay anything for access to recreational sites in any part of the reserve today through Monday as the U.S. Forest Service drops all fees in celebration of Presidents Day.

According to the USFS, fee waivers will be in effect in all areas of the 676,666-acre forest, about a third of which is in Riverside County.

rivers and lakes.

Forest Service officials noted that fees for campground reservations and use of concession stands would still apply.

Access to 98 percent of federally protected land is free most -- if not all -- of the time. However, a few activities require a Daily Adventure Pass.

Fee-waiver days are also planned June 7 and 14, as well as Sept. 27 and the weekend of Nov. 8-11.
