Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Will Increase Entrance, Camping and Boat Use Fees Beginning June 1

Page, Az. – Starting on June 1, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area will increase fees for visitors in order to fund important maintenance and improvement projects within the park.

“This modest fee increase will allow us to continue to preserve, protect and share the special places in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Rainbow Bridge National Monument in the face of increasing costs,” said Superintendent Todd Brindle.  “After carefully considering public input, we are implementing a reduced fee schedule from what we originally proposed back in December of 2014.”

The Interagency Senior and Annual Pass prices will remain the same, as will commercial tour fees.  Interagency Access and Military Passes remain available at no charge.  All motorized vessels will be charged a full fee and discounts for additional motorized watercraft on one trailer will be eliminated.  Senior and Access pass holders will continue to receive free entrance and a 50% discount on camping and boat use fees.  People under 16 years old are not charged an entrance fee.

Additional revenue from the fee increase will be used to enhance visitor services, including courtesy docks, boat pump-out facilities, aids to navigation, and lake access. Visitors will also benefit from improved hiking trails, campground rehabilitation, new and rehabilitated backcountry campsites, graffiti and trash removal, a new water treatment plant at Lees Ferry, enhanced protection of cultural and natural resources, and additional interpretive media and ranger programs. Additional revenue will also be used to fund major projects that maintain lake access during fluctuating water levels, such as ramp extensions and the Castle Rock cut.

In the fall of 2014, the National Park Service conducted a nationwide review of entrance fees. To solicit public input, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area launched a civic engagement campaign in December 2014.

During the public comment period, the park received 34 formal comments. While the majority of comments supported an increase, some people felt that the originally proposed increase was too high. In response to public comments, the park modified the proposal to reduce the fee schedule and phase implementation.
