Fees & Reservations
Dinosaur National Monument participates in the congressionally authorized Federal Recreation Lands 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 annual Congressional allocations. Entrance fees help support projects in the monument to improve the experience for visitors. For more information, call (435) 781-7700.

Fee Free Days
Several days throughout the year have been designated as fee free days at your national parks including Dinosaur National Monument. On these days, entrance fees will not be charged, however, camping and other use fees will still be collected. To find out the fee free days for 2014 visit the Fee Free Days website.
Academic Fee Waivers
Campground fees are waived during the late fall, winter and early spring when water is not available in the campgrounds. The park will resume charging for campgrounds once water service is turned on, usually some time in April or May, depending on location.
