Comment Period for Fee Increases at National Parks Open Until November 23

Parks on the proposed list include:

  • Acadia National Park
  • Arches National Park
  • Bryce Canyon National Park
  • Canyonlands National Park
  • Denali National Park
  • Glacier National Park
  • Grand Canyon National Park
  • Grand Teton National Park

  • Mount Rainier National Park
  • Olympic National Park
  • Rocky Mountain National Park
  • Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park
  • Shenandoah National Park
  • Yellowstone National Park
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Zion National Park

The public is invited to submit comments to the proposed increase between October 24 and November 23, 2017. To submit comments online, click here.
