In compliance with the Federal Lands Recreation Act of 2004, Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is seeking public comment on entrance fee rate increases proposed to become effective in 2015.The current fees are $3.00 per person, $5.00 per family, and the charge for an annual park pass is $10.00. A phased approach is being proposed with an increase to $20 for the annual park pass, $10 per vehicle, and $5 per person in 2015 and a subsequent increase in 2017 to $30 for annual park pass, $15 per vehicle or $7 per person.The current park fees have been in effect since 1998.

Entrance fees are not charged to persons under 16 years of age or holders of the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Senior, Access or Military Passes. These passes may be obtained at the Park.
