Point Park on top of Lookout Mountain is the only Designated Fee Area located within Chickamauga and Chattanooga NMP. The fee is $10.00 per adult (age 16 or older). Children 15 years or younger are free.

However, the park offers a fee waiver for educational institutions participating in field trips or educational outings. ONLY educational institutions bringing students who are over the age of 16 will need to apply for a fee waiver. Education institutions bringing students who are 15 and younger need NOT apply for a fee waiver for their students or their teachers/chaperones.

Sections 1, 2, and 5 of the attached form will need to be completed, even if your educational institution is not requesting a formal ranger-led program (please indicate on the form or in your e-mail, if this is the case).


Once completed, please attach and submit your form to chch_education@nps.gov.

Furthermore, according to Reference Manual 22A: Recreation Fee Collection, the following are some examples of activities exempt from entrance fees:

  • Individuals conducting official business for Federal, state, tribal, or local government are exempt from paying entrance fees.
  • Outings conducted for non-commercial educational purposes by schools and other bona fide academic institutions.
  • Any person under 16 years of age including international visitors who are 15 and younger.
  • Holders of permits for commercial filming and still photography.
  • Individuals entering an entrance fee park on a fee-free day.
  • Researchers, contractors, vendors, and utility, delivery, or service people entering and working in the park for non-recreational purposes.
