As part of a national directive, the 10 National Park Service (NPS) units in Utah that collect entrance fees from park visitors will soon begin public outreach to gauge support for possible changes in park fees beginning in 2015.

All national parks are authorized to change recreation fees to align with the NPS’s new standard entrance-fee schedule, which was last updated in 2006. The parks must all actively engage the public via community outreach sessions regarding the proposed fee changes and their effects prior to any final decisions. Individual parks also have the option not to raise fees.
