Rocky Mountain National Park to raise entrance, other fees
DENVER — Rocky Mountain National Park will raise its entrance fees and other costs in October.
The weekly pass for a car entering the park will climb from $20 to $30. The new single-day pass for cars will cost $20. The annual park pass will be $50, up from $40, with an increase to $60 planned in 2017. Campground fees will also increase to $26 a night in 2016.
The Denver Post reports the Park Service proposed an entrance-fee hike in September. The last system wide increase was in 2009.
Last year, Rocky Mountain National Park was the fifth-most-visited national park in the U.S., with more than 3.4 million visitors.
Basic operations at the park are funded by Congress, and fees support enhancements and improvements.
