More on Fees in National Parks

Given the interest on National Park fees in the blog since our presentation last week, I thought I would provide a few additional updates that I’ve noticed in the news over the past week regarding fees at sites managed by the National Park Service.

-It was recently announced that some military parks would increase their fees from $7 to $10 per person in 2020:

-Fees at the James A. Garfield Historic Site will also be increased from $7 to $10:

-The Assateague Island National Seashore in Maryland will double its entrance fees from $5 to $10:

-Finally, there currently is a public comment period regarding Oregon Cave National Monument and Preserve regarding visitor experience and potential changes that will take place at the park. Here is a link to an article with more, and the article also contains a link to the public comment webpage if you are interested in seeing what that process looks like or providing a comment yourself:
