Saguaro National Park entrance fees will increase next year

Saguaro National Park entrance fees will increase next year”

Yellowstone National Park will be one of 17 popular parks raising entry fees by $5 starting June 1 to $35 per vehicle. The move by Interior Department follows an earlier proposal that would have more than doubled entry fees to pay $70 per vehicle for visitors at Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and other major parks. In Yellowstone, 80 percent of entrance fees stay in the park and are devoted to spending that supports the visitor.

A list of all affected parks, and the amount and effective date of their fee increases, can be found on the park service's "Entrance Fees by Park" webpage.

The agency explains: "The funds will be used for projects and activities to improve the experience for visitors who continue to visit parks at unprecedented levels". "Also, there have been fairly dramatic increases in visitation at national parks, and that increases the need for maintenance". "Visitors benefit when park roads, trails, and boardwalks are maintained and provide access to the park's treasures".

On January 21, 2017, Daines announced that he would take the gavel of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on National Parks and outlined his goals as Subcommittee Chair, including reducing the maintenance backlog.

Badlands is among many national parks struggling with deferred maintenance, the park said. The current rates of $15 per vehicle and $10 per motorcycle have been in effect since January 1, 2017. "The NPS estimates that once fully implemented, the new fee structure will increase annual entrance fee revenue by approximately $60 million". Admission to 300 of these sites is free and will continue to be free.

On Sunday, Shenandoah National Park will also mark Earth Day and the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System and Wild and Scenic Rivers Act with a special ranger-led hike on the Appalachian Trail.

On March 7, 2018, Daines joined a group of eight senators and two representatives to introduce a bipartisan, bicameral bill that will use revenues from energy production on federal lands to help pay for the over $11 billion maintenance backlog at USA national parks.
