Does anyone know the correct story on these? A friend got what he thought was a citation for not having one last Sunday at the Twin Lakes parking lot. The amount was for $5.00. He called the Forest Service and was told "It's not really a citation and there are no repercussions for not paying it" Also a few years ago I was going to park in an area where the permit was needed and did not have one and was questioning a FS employee about it and I got a conflicting information. I did some checking into it and I found some information about it referencing it was referred to as a 'Discovery' plan in that they wanted to see how many people would actually purchase one but in fact was not LEGALLY required. Anybody know the the REAL story?
