Fees & Passes
Entrance fees or a valid National Park pass are required. Death Valley National Park does not require an advanced entry reservation or pass to enter the park; park fees may be paid upon arrival. Due to COVID-mitigations most vendors are only accepting credit/debit cards at this time; we strongly encourage cash users to obtain a pre-paid credit card prior to your arrival.
