River Permit Fees

Application Fee
A $15 application fee must be submitted with any application, which includes lottery applications, one-day or multi-day trips.

Multi-Day Trips
The permit fee for a multi-day trip is $185, and must be paid immediately upon booking.

One-Day Trips
The permit fee for a one-day trip is $20, and must be paid immediately upon booking.

Overlength Trip Fee
During the high-use season, the normal trip length for river trips is five days on the Yampa River and four days on the Green River. When applying for a permit on Recreation.gov, you may apply for an additional day on your trip. Overlength trip requests cannnot be approved nor itineraries assigned until campsites are assigned for all permits, which occurs 30 days in advance of the trip launch date. The overlength trip fee is $35, which is due at time of booking. If your request for an additional day is unsuccessful, your $35 trip fee will be refunded.
