Implementation of Fees at Beehive Primitive Camping Area at Ferry Swale
The National Park Service (NPS), in accordance with RM 22A, proposes adding a new expanded amenity fee using the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA) authority to add a campground fee of $14 to the Beehives Primitive Campground at Ferry Swale, located in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Arizona.
The Beehives Primitive Campground is located near Page, Arizona on the west side of Highway 89 near the Wahweap South Entrance. In 2017, it became apparent the area had become a popular hiking access point and the heavy visitation and off-road camping was beginning to negatively impact the site. In 2018, the park provided six delineated camping sites to address the demand for primitive camping while protecting the area and preventing resource damage.
The funds from the proposed fee will be used for activities and projects that serve visitors to Glen Canyon NRA. Park fees allow the National Park Service (NPS) to invest in the improvements necessary to provide the best possible park experience to our visitors. Ongoing projects at Glen Canyon NRA are funded under the authority of the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act and address high priority park needs.
Public comments and questions about these changes are being accepted through July 24 (see "Open for Comment" tab under "Project Links" on the left-hand side of this page).
A public meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Headquarters Building, located at 691 Scenic View Rd, Page, Arizona. Management and staff will be available to answer questions and discuss the proposed fee in more detail.
