Fee Changes for 2019
Maine increased its minimum wage again this year by one dollar from $10 to $11 per hour.  In order to help offset the cost of this increase, there are several fee changes going into effect in 2019:
- Resident daily fee from $10 to $11 to coincide with the new minimum wage
- Non-resident daily fee from $15 to $16
- Resident Summer & Fall Day Use pass from $70 to $80
- Resident Annual Day Use pass from $125 to $140

Other fee categories will not change at this time.

GOOD NEWS:
North Maine Woods has raised the minimum age that requires visitors to pay fees from age fifteen to age eighteen for both the North Maine Woods and the KI Jo-Mary Forest. There has been a trend towards fewer young people hunting, fishing, canoeing and camping in the Maine woods, so perhaps this change will have a positive impact on this trend.

Another change is half price camping in the Deboullie Township which is owned by Maine’s Bureau of Parks and Lands. Located about ten miles south of St. Francis and thirty miles northwest of Portage, this area has undergone significant improvements to its 30 campsites and over 30 miles of hiking trails.   In cooperation with Maine’s Bureau of Parks and Lands, NMW landowners have reduced the NMW regular camping fees by half (for the Deboullie Township only) to help attract people to experience the improvements made to this area.
