Proposal Could Raise The Cost Of A Yosemite Visit
A visit to Yosemite National Park may soon become more expensive. On Monday the park service announced a plan to raise the single vehicle entry fee from $20 dollars to $30 for a seven day pass. The cost of an annual pass would also rise from $40 to $60.
The proposal would also raise campsite fees, and the cost for hikers and motorcyclists:
The current rate of $10 per individual or motorcycle would increase to $15 for an individual and $25 per motorcycle. Interagency Passes, which are honored at all federally managed land units, are not affected by the proposed fee increase and will remain at $80 for the regular pass, $10 for the Senior Pass and free for the Access and Military passes.
The current fee structure has been in place in the park since 1997. The current proposal is subject to a 30 day public comment period.
If implemented, the new fees would take effect early next year.
