Haleakalā National Park Proposes Revision of Entrance Fee Structure
On August 19, 2014, the National Park Service authorized parks to conduct stakeholder outreach through civic engagement to gauge support for possible fee changes to entrance, expanded amenity, and special recreation permit fees authorized by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA) of 2004. The National Park Service (NPS) has updated the standard entrance fee rate schedule to increase entrance fees. This will be the first fee increase since 2006. The proposed increases in park entrance fees will allow us to invest in the improvements necessary to provide the best possible park experience to our visitors. Additional funds will enable us to enhance visitor facilities and services as we approach our centennial anniversary in 2016. Click here to read full document
