Sourcing USGS, NPS, and USFS Icons to download and upload into my account

I am having difficulty finding a site that has downloadable icons used by USGS, NPS, and USFS, any suggestions? I am already a Pro Member so I'm assuming I have access to all that CalTopo has for icons, but I am looking to customize my own maps with those icons used in the areas that I frequent the most. I have already used a lot of the icons added in 2014 and those features, too. I'm trying to find an easier way than microsurgery in Illustrator, Photoshop, or anything else because the list is extensive.

It would be nice to be able to have the hover option for all the icons you have, like on the US&R icons which tell you what the icon means. Being able to change color of icons other than basic markers would be useful as well.

Any advise would be appreciated. I really enjoy using this platform. I'm on here as often as most are on their phones. Thanks for creating such a solid tool.

    Sorry, no idea. If you find out let me know so I can include them myself.

    Redoing the existing icons so that among other things, they're vector images that can easily be re-colored like the dots and arrows, is on the docket.
