Fruita, CO – Colorado National Monument is requesting public comment on a proposal to increase the daily fee for overnight stays at Saddlehorn Campground. The current fee is $20.00 per night. The proposed increase will be $22.00 per night. Holders of the America the Beautiful Access and Senior Lifetime passes would continue to receive 50% off the per night campground fee. 

The campground fee was last raised in 2011. Since then the administrative costs associated with the campground, including the National Recreation Reservation System service charges have gone up. “We are committed to keeping the park affordable, but we also want to provide visitors with the best possible experience,” said Colorado National Monument Superintendent Ken Mabery. “The money from camping fees is used to fund projects benefiting the park visitor’s experience.” 

To comment on the proposed campground fee increase, please provide your comments between August 15 and September 15, 2018 online at or through the mail to:
