Park Visitors
All park visitors are required to purchase a recreational use pass upon entering Haleakala National Park. Haleakala 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 yearly Congressional allocations. Projects include the building of new restroom facilities by Haleakala Visitor Center, improvement of park trails, creating park exhibits, construction of entrance stations, and protection of rare and endangered species. Funded projects increase the quality of the visitor experience and enhance the protection of park resources.
