Your Fees Benefit the Park

The fees you pay when visiting Wupatki National Monument make a difference! We participate in the Congressionally-authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act. Under this program, our parks keep 100% percent of all fees collected and use that money to fund important projects that improve visitor services and protect resources. At Wupatki, your fees were used to work on projects like:

  • vegetation control along roadsides.
  • trail maintenance and rehabilitation.
  • off-road vehicle fencing to protect park resources.
  • replacing outdated exhibits.
