Proposed Fee Rates Increase to Align with NPS Standard Pricing Model
Lassen Volcanic National Park (LAVO) proposes increasing park-wide fee rates to align with the new standard pricing model of similar National Park areas. The current park entrance fee rates were partially raised in 2015 from the rates that were in place at Lassen Volcanic since 1998. The proposed entrance fee increases would take effect January 1, 2018 and are as follows:
a. 1-7 Day Vehicle Fee will increase from $20 to $25
b. 1-7 Day Individual Fee (Hikers, Bicycles, Horses) will increase from $10 per person to $12 per person
c. 1-7 Day Motorcycle Fee will increase from$15 per person to $20 per motorcycle
d. Lassen Annual Pass will increase from $40 to $50
e. On-line Campground and Corral Reservation Fees will increase by $2
Recreation fee dollars at Lassen Volcanic have made possible the reopening of Butte Lake Campground, installation of park-wide wayside exhibits, development of the Lassen Crossroads Information pavilions, installation of campground bear-proof food lockers, restoration of the Lassen Peak Trail, repair of Pacific Crest Trail, horse corral improvements, rehabilitation of the Devastated Area Accessible Interpretive Trail, installation of ADA-compliant audiovisual system at Loomis Museum, provide children's interpretive exhibits in the visitor center, develop Crags Campground youth camp, rehabilitation of three campground amphitheaters, and museum / visitor center exhibits. Additional revenue raised by a fee increase would be used to improve and maintain park trails, campgrounds, roads, and visitor facilities.
Comments can be submitted through the park's planning website beginning July 1, 2017 and ending July 31, 2017. A public meeting will be held in Redding, CA July 18, 2017, 5:30 - 7:00 pm at the Redding Public Library.
