Proposed Fee Increase for Non-commercial Groups
Ryan McKelvey, Fee Business Manager
The National Park Service proposes a possible fee increase in 2018 for non-commercial groups visiting the park by bus. This change is in response to the service-wide effort to standardize entrance fees. The proposed increase will have relatively low impact to the majority of park visitors. Of the 2.3 million people who visit Assateague annually, only 134 individuals were charged this entrance fee type in 2017 (year-to-date), which is below the past three year average of only 368 individuals annually.
