......jumping up by $5....from $30 to $35......not double of $70 that most thought......just announced .....


Entrance fees to go up by $5 at Utah’s national parks — and most others across U.S. — after feds scrap plan to double some of those charges

.....
Fees to enter some of America’s national parks, including all five in Utah, will go up by $5 come June after Interior officials backed away from a plan to more than double some entrance costs at popular venues in the wake of public outcry.

The original plan unveiled by the Interior Department in October would have hiked fees during peak visitation season for 17 parks, including four of Utah’s Mighty Five, up to $70.

But the new change will raise the fees by $5 at parks nationwide that already charge to enter, bringing the cost of admission at Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks to $35 per vehicle for a seven-day pass and $30 per vehicle for the same time period at Arches and Canyonlands, according to the plan obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune on Thursday ahead of the announcement......



the great.....outdoors.........?!

Um, this is to improve infrastructure that has been ignored and unfunded for years.
It's about time the parks neglect has been addressed.

I'm guessing congress is going to include a raise in the gas tax soon. Wild speculation.

Interesting sidenote: This is in-line with the fee-changes that were supposed to go into effect under the Obama administration by 2016, but most of the raises were postponed.

Yes.

I got my Senior pass a couple years back. Should have done so a long time ago, but when they announced that the price would go up 'sometime in the near future, I actual got round to it.
