Fees & Passes

Fee Structure Changes January 1, 2019


On January 1, 2019, there will be a modest increase to Colonial National Historical Park entrance fees. This increase is being implemented at all 117 fee-charging parks across the country to raise additional revenue to address the deferred maintenance needs at all National Parks, including Jamestown Island and Yorktown Battlefield. This is part of the National Park Service (NPS) efforts to address aging park infrastructure and to improve the visitor experience at all National Parks. The updated fee structure at Colonial National Historical Park beginning January 1, 2019 will be:

- Entrance fees at Jamestown Island include entrance to Yorktown Battlefield
- Adults presenting valid Yorktown Battlefield receipt pay a reduced admission of $10 at Jamestown Island

All of the NPS revenue from the fee increases will remain in the National Park Service with at least 80 percent of the money staying in the park where it is collected. The funds will be used for projects and activities to improve the experience for visitors who continue to visit parks at unprecedented levels. Increased attendance at parks, 1.5 billion visits in the last five years, means aging park facilities incurring further wear and tear.
