Chart of proposed incremental entrance fee increase through 2017.  The fee for the Annual Tri-Park Pass will not be raised until 2017 in an attempt to minimize the impact of fee increases to the local community.

Proposed Entrance Fee Increase - Public Comment

Beginning in 2015, Haleakalā National Park may be changing their entrance fees to align with the new National Park Service rate schedule. Based on feedback received through public outreach, such as this survey, the park will develop a strategy that meets the needs and expectations of the community. Fees have not increased at Haleakalā since 2006, and there continues to be a growing need for funds to improve facilities, infrastructure and visitor services in the park. The new potential revenue from the fee increases would be used to provide enhanced visitor services including repair and maintenance of facilities, natural and cultural resource management, education and visitor programs. For more information, please review the park's press release regarding the possible entrance fee increase, as well as the chart on the park's proposed incremental fee schedule.
