West Point Lake resumes fee collections

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at West Point Lake resumed fee collections on Monday, following a temporary hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a USACE press release. New cashless automated machines have been installed as a safer way to collect user fees. They have been installed at the following locations: the Anderson day use area boat ramp, the Horace King day use area boat ramp, the R. Shaefer Heard day use area boat ramp, the Yellow Jacket day use area boat ramp, the Yellow Jacket day use area beach, the Glass Bridge day use area boat ramp, Earl Cook Recreation Area, and Rocky Point Recreation Area.

The boat launching and day use fee at each of these locations is $5 per vehicle per day. These machines only accept major credit and debit cards, not cash. After the machine dispenses a receipt, the receipt must be displayed on the dashboard of the paying visitor’s dashboard as proof of payment.

No fees will be required for those who properly display the Corps of Engineers annual day use pass or the America The Beautiful passes.

To purchase an annual pass or for more information, contact the West Point Project Management Office at (706) 645-2937 or follow the USACE at West Point Lake on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/WestPointLake.USACE.
