The National Park Service has designated the following fee free days for 2015:
Bryce Canyon National Park will waive the $25 entrance fee during the fee-free periods. The entrance stations will be staffed to provide maps, information and sell annual park passes.
The waiver does not include other fees such as camping. As these fee-free days may be extra busy with traffic and parking congestion, visitors are encouraged to ride the park's free shuttle when available.
Bryce Canyon participates in the Congressionally authorized Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. Under this program, parks keep 80% of all fees collected;the remaining 20% will be deposited in a special account to be used in parks where fees are not collected. Funds generated by the fees are used to accomplish projects the parks have been unable to fund through yearly Congressional allocations. Projects include the protection of the parks' road investment through overlays, patching, chipseal, drainage, and erosion control;enhancement of accessibility for the physically challenged to park resources and buildings, upgrading of park campgrounds, and amphitheaters;rehabilitation of park structures;and repair of failing elements in utility systems parkwide. Funded projects increase the quality of the visitor experience and enhance the protection of park resources.
