Looking for a unique gift idea for the holidays?  A Rocky Mountain National Park Annual Pass is a great gift for that person who enjoys visiting the park or would like to visit more often.     

A Rocky Mountain National Park Annual Pass is a gift that gives in many ways. Your recipient will be able to enjoy all the beauty and adventure the park has to offer during all seasons and Rocky Mountain National Park benefits greatly from the purchase as well.  From enjoying breathtaking scenery to hiking, viewing wildlife and wildflowers to snowshoeing, the park has something to offer everyone, depending on their interests and what season they visit. In the past 15 years, almost $60 million from fees has been spent on campground improvements, new restrooms, trail maintenance, an updated park film, enhanced trailhead bulletin boards, critical hazard tree mitigation and much more.    

The annual park pass is $40 and can be purchased at any Rocky Mountain National Park entrance station, or by credit card from our Fees and Reservations webpage. The Rocky Mountain National Park annual pass is a great deal.  If you visit twice a year it pays for itself," said Superintendent Vaughn Baker, "plus, eighty percent of those fees stay right here in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Recently, these fees have helped with important hazard tree mitigation projects related to the mountain pine beetle epidemic."  For general information on Rocky Mountain National Park please call the park's Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
