The concessionaire cannot charge you only for parking anyway, regrdless whether you have a pass. You can park anywhere on FS land to access the wilderness or hiking trails, including a parking area without having to pay a fee. You must use other amenities readily available at the site in order to be obligated to pay the fee.
Get the word out. Unless you use an amenity specified in the FLREA (Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act), you are not obligated to pay a fee. If someone gives you a ticket, it's not a ticket. It's a notice of non-compliance. Do not comply. Simply take the notice and leave when you are ready to leave. DO NOT PAY THE FEE if you do not use an amenity (and there are 6 that are supposed to be present).
The WSNF web site has plenty of info on this matter.
