ONEIDA, Tenn. (AP) — Public comment is being taken on a proposal to increase some fees at Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area in Tennessee and Kentucky.

The National Park Service says the proposal is for increases in the daily fee for overnight stays at some park campgrounds and for daily use of picnic shelters and a new venue for event reservations.

The changes would take effect on May 1.

New fees being proposed at Bandy Creek, Blue Heron and Alum Ford campgrounds range from $15 to $140 per night.

Picnic shelter rental fees would increase from $10 to $30 per day.
