Paying your fees or purchasing a pass
Montezuma Castle National Monument 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. That means that when you pay your fees or buy a pass your money goes directly back into the park.
Public support is a critical component in the management of National Park Service lands. No other federal agency relies as heavily on the generosity and kindness of its visitors, volunteers, and donors and we thank you for your past support and look forward to future partnerships.
