In 2014, the National Park Service issued the call for parks nationwide to conduct stakeholder outreach through civic engagement to gauge support for possible fee changes to entrance, expanded amenity, and special recreation permit fees authorized by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA) of 2004. Entrance fees had not been raised since 2007.
Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks and Cedar Breaks National Monument started the discussion of raising fees in December by calling and visiting with State, Federal and local legislative offices and staff.
The three parks also issued press releases, posted proposed fee increase information on park websites and Facebook pages, and attended a variety of public meetings to gather feedback.
