2018 Cedar Breaks NM Proposed Fee Increase
In May 2017, the Secretary of the Interior released an updated entrance fee rate schedule based on designation and visitation levels for all National Park Service (NPS) units charging fees. NPS units across the country, including Cedar Breaks National Monument, are inviting public input on a proposed fee increase scheduled for 2018.
Previous Cedar Breaks National Monument fee increases have been issued incrementally from 2015-2017. The proposed 2018 fee increase would be in addition to these prior annual increases in order to bring the Monument into compliance with the standardized NPS fee structure. Under the nationwide pricing model, Cedar Breaks National Monument would increase entrance fees from $6.00 to $7.00 per person and from $25.00 to $30.00 per annual pass. Entrance fees are not charged to persons under 16 years of age or holders of the America the Beautiful-The National Parks and Federal Recreational Annual, Senior, Access, Military, Every Kid in a Park or Volunteer Passes, which may be obtained at NPS units nationwide. Camping fees would also increase from $20.00 to $24.00 per night.
Fees are collected under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA) authority to ensure recreation fees collected are reinvested to improve visitor services, and to maintain and provide experiences for future visitors to federal lands. These fee monies are used for a variety of park projects that improve and enhance visitor enjoyment and safety.
