The Americans With Disability Act (ADA) was passed in 1990. Since then the guidelines for wheelchair access to various components of park and campground site elements has been evolving. On September 26, 2013, the Final Guidelines for Federal Outdoor Recreation Sites was issued. These rules became mandatory on November 25, 2013, and apply to facilities that are built, altered or leased with federal funds. The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Dept. of Transportation have issued their own rules based on the ADA rules. Most states adopt their own rules based on these federal rules.
