Fees & Reservations

The National Park Service has designated the following fee free days for 2015:

  • Martin Luther King Jr Day - January 19
  • Presidents Day Weekend - February 14-16
  • First Weekend of National Park Week - April 18-19
  • National Park Service's 98th Birthday - August 25
  • National Public Lands Day - September 26
  • Veteran's Day - November 11

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.

The entrance fee to Bryce Canyon National Park is $25 per private vehicle. The fee for an individual entering by foot, bicycle, motorcycle, or non-commercial group is $12.00 per person. Admission is for seven days and includes unlimited use of the Shuttle during it's operating season. No refunds are given due to inclement weather. more>>

Reservations for camping and lodging are recommended. Camping fees are in addition to entrance fees, and are charged per night. Campsite reservations fill up fast; reservations can be made up to six months in advance.
