Grand Canyon South RimGrand Canyon National Park is proposing an increase in entrance fees from $25 to $30 for the seven day pass. Other entrance fees would increase such as the annual pass from $50 to $60. Entrance fees for individuals and motorcycles are now $12 and would increase to $15 for individuals and $25 for motorcycles. Entrance fees haven’t increased since 1997. Eighty percent of these fees stay in that national park to make repairs and improvements. The Grand Canyon free shuttle bus is one service funded by entrance fees. Out of the 401 US National Parks, only 133 charge an admission fee.

Comment period runs from November 7, 2015 to January 7, 2015. You can send an email comment through their website or you can mail your comment to Grand Canyon National Park, ATTN: Proposed Fee Increase, PO Box 129, Grand Canyon, AZ 86023.

These passes may be obtained at the Park. Interagency Passes, which are honored at all federally managed land units, are not affected by the proposed fee increase and will remain at $80 for the Interagency Annual Pass, $10 for the Senior Pass and free for the Access or Military passes.
