Update on fees
Entrance fees at all National Parks have been frozen since 2008. In preparation for the Centennial in 2016, and in order to greet our visitors with the best possible infrastructure, Director Jon Jarvis directed park units to start the public scoping process for fee increases. Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot are part of the 131 park units (of over 400 total) that completed the process.
Starting August 4th, 2015, fees will increase at Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments to $10/person, good at both monuments - that means only one fee now! An annual pass will be added for $30, also good at both monuments. Montezuma Well will remain free.
The national passes, also mentioned below, will remain at their current rates. Those are: $80 for the Annual Pass; $10 for the lifetime Senior Pass; free lifetime pass for disabled persons; and free annual pass for current military personnel and their dependents.
Fee Free Days in 2015:
Entrance to Montezuma Well is FREE!
Montezuma Castle Entrance Fees (Current fees)
Adults (16 and over): $5.00 (good for seven days)
Entrance fees can be purchased at the Visitor Center.
Passes are available at a discounted rate of $8.00 for both Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments. If you are planning on visiting both parks, you may ask for this discounted pass, or you may use your $5 entrance fee pass from either monument for the $2 discount when you purchase your entrance fee at the second park.
