Mike! Thanks for sharing that. Good to see you here!

Thanks to Jenn, our friend at freecampsites.net, for the following information

A public comment period on the peak-season entrance fee proposal will be open from October 24, 2017 to November 23, 2017, on the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) website https://parkplanning.nps.gov/proposedpeakseasonfeerates. Written comments can be sent to 1849 C Street, NW, Mail Stop: 2346 Washington, DC 20240.

You don't have to register to comment. Your name is optional. They require your town, state and zip code.
I'd like to give myself a few negative ratings, because I am such a big meanie. The forum won't allow it. Feel free!

$50 for a motorcycle!!!

Is that for one day? I know the local national park near me, "Gulf Islands National Seashore", says that admission is good for a week. Or at least it was in recent history.

Hope that they will honor passes.

This easily goes into politics because the federal government has one of those war type deals going on against national lands. Years of underfunding has lead them to brace themselves for the upcoming budget.

From what I can tell from the chart in the link given enough, the daily rate would not change other than motorcycles. It is the yearly pass into the individual park, and for most listed it goes up $15/yr or so. For the Grand Canyon the yearly rate goes from the current $60 to $75/yr. The America the Beautiful pass is still $85. I can't imagine too many people buy an annual pass to just one park.

Oops, the chart is confusing. The price to get into the Grand anyones would go up from $30 to $70. The interagency pass will still be honored, so it definitely makes sense to get one even at $80/yr for those under 62. I do think the increase is way too much, and I'll comment officially.

Those prices seem totally out of line. Just saying if I understand this correctly, my entrance to a park in my van would be $70.00? Seriously?
Not gonna happen for me if that happens.

The yearly pass sales to all parks will go up. Maybe that is their goal.
