Fees & Reservations
As of October 1, 2006, there are no entrance fees at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park.
The park sells the America the Beautiful National Parks & Federal Recreation Lands Pass at the Mound City Group Visitor Center. Payment for passes at the visitor center must be made with personal check or cash. If you must purchase a pass with a credit card, you can visit another federal site which sells the passes or you can go online and purchase a pass.
The pass series consists of the Annual Pass, the Senior Pass, the Access Pass and the free Annual Pass for U.S. Military. Children under the age of 16 are admitted free at all NPS fee sites.
PLEASE NOTE: Golden Access and Golden Age Passports are no longer sold. However, these passes will continue to be honored according to the provisions of the pass.
