HOMESTEAD, Florida: Visitors to Everglades National Park now have the convenience of purchasing online—at no additional cost—annual and seven-day electronic entrance passes in advance of their trip. The NPS partnered with Smart Destinations to better serve park visitors.
Once purchased, the electronic entrance pass can be printed or reside on a mobile device for use at the park on the date of purchase or at a specified future date. Park staff will validate the entrance pass using a QR (Quick Response) code. Specific instructions on how to use the electronic entrance pass are provided at the time of purchase. The pass is non-transferable, non-refundable, non-replaceable if lost or stolen, and void if altered or reproduced.
Pedro Ramos, superintendent of Everglades National Park, said, "By having the ability to purchase entrance passes at home or on their smart phone in advance of their visit, visitors have an even more convenient way to plan their trip and enter the park."
The NPS uses entrance fees at Everglades to invest in critical improvements that directly benefit visitors, including maintaining and enhancing visitor facilities.
Everglades National Park joins Colorado National Monument (Colorado), Theodore Roosevelt National Park (North Dakota), San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park (California), Acadia National Park (Maine) and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (California) with online entrance pass sales.
The annual entrance pass fee for Everglades National Park is $40. Seven-day entrance passes are $20 for a private vehicle, $15 for a motorcycle, and $8 for an individual. Persons under age 16 are admitted free. All national parks honor the America the Beautiful –The National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Annual, Senior, Access, Military and Every Kid in a Park 4thGrade passes.
