Some entrance fees at Yellowstone National Park will go up on Monday, May 1.

The entrance fee change was first announced last September. It’s the first time entrance fees at Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks have increased since December 1996.

A 7-day pass to enter Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks in a private, non-commercial automobile goes from $20 to $25. Individual week-long permits for motorcycles increase from $15 to $20. Hikers, bicyclists and skiers will pay $12 instead of $10 for a 7-day permit.

An annual pass to enter both parks remains at $40. The National Parks Pass, good for entrance into any National Park Service site for a year, is still just $50.

Yellowstone expects to generate $1 million each year in additional revenue due to the fee increase. Most of the money will stay in the park and be used for projects that enhance visitor health and safety, access, and enjoyment.
