Park Visitors
All park visitors are required to purchase a recreational use pass upon entering Zion National Park. Zion 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. Your Fee Dollars at Work
