The Rio Grande Wild & Scenic River does not have an entry fee, however, if you float the portions of the Wild & Scenic River inside Big Bend National Park, you will be charged for entry into the National Park. A backcountry use permit is required for all river use. Day-use river permits are free, while overnight or multi-day river trips have a permit fee of $12.
