Carpooling / Vanpooling
Carpooling is an option if you are coming to the park with friends. It may be something to consider if you are planning a visit on weekends, when the parking lots tend to fill.
Entrance fees are $5.00 per vehicle. Park passes, including Great Falls Park annual passes, National Parks Passes, and Golden Age passes are good for the passholder and anyone else in the vehicle.
