Visitor Center Rennovations
Park is having major heating/cooling system work done. The Visitor Center is closed (we don't know how long-mid July?) but restrooms, movie auditorium, historic ruins area, and picnic area remain open (no fees or pass sales during rennovation)
Educational Fee Waivers
Fee Waiver Benefits
Students 15 and under are free. The park does not charge an entry fee for children ages 15 and under during any visit.
The fee waiver applies to accompanying adult chaperones and students over the age of 15.
Fees may be waived for up to 2 adults per every 5 students. Additional adults would have to pay the entrance fee once the waiver limit has been met. The absolute top limit for adults covered by a fee waiver is 20 adults chaperoning 50 students. Special needs groups are covered under a separate park policy and this chaperone/attendant limit does not apply.
