Crater Lake National Park Proposes Rate Increase

The National Park Service hopes to start the increase on May 1, 2018.

Posted: Feb 22, 2018 5:57 PM

CRATER LAKE, Ore. — The National Park Service (NPS) announced today that they would like to raise entrance fees for access to the park. The public will have a chance between now and Sunday, March 25 to voice their opinions on the fee increase. 

The increase would vary widely depending on the type of pass used. Single vehicle fees for a seven-day pass would increase from $15 to $25, while annual passes would increase from $30 to $50. Fees for individuals and and motorcycles would increase from a flat $10 to $12 per individual or $20 per motorcycle. America the Beautiful Passes, good for parks nation-wide, would remain the same—$80 for the year.

A statement from the NPS noted that the fee increases is part of an initiative to standardize fees in similarly sized parks all over the US. The last rate increase at Crater Lake was in 2015, although it was only a $5 jump for the seven-day pass. This second increase has been planned since before the first was instituted. The May 1, 2018 increase would be the last planned rate hike.

The NPS statement promises that the additional revenue from higher fees would go towards better visitor services, repair and maintenance of facilities, restoration of visitor service buildings, more park programs, interpretive media, and resource protection. The previous rate increase helped to fund a number of trail improvements and maintenance to park facilities. Further improvements are already planned for 2018.
