Dinosaur National Monument and other National Park Service(NPS) units that collect entrance fees from park visitors are beginning public outreach to gauge support for possible changes in park fees. Dinosaur National Monument last increased its entrance fee in 1998 when it went from $5 to $10 per private vehicle.
Beginning in 2015, National Park Service sites are authorized to change recreation fees to align with the NPS's new standard entrance-fee schedule, which was last updated in 2006. They may not do so, however, until after actively engaging the public about proposed fee changes and their effects. Decisions to adjust fees will be made locally and only after considering community feedback from the public outreach. Each park, including Dinosaur National Monument will document its outreach efforts, and results must be approved by the director of the National Park Service before any fee increase can take effect.
