HOMESTEAD, FL– Starting October 1, Everglades National Park will institute fee increases for Vehicle and Motorcycle entrance to the park. Entrance fees will increase as follows:
The Vehicle entrance fee will increase from $20 to $25.
The Motorcycle entrance fee will increase from $15 to $20.
All other park fees remain the same with no change.
These increased entrance fees for visitors will fund important maintenance and improvement projects within the park. Until last year, Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks had not increased park-wide fees since 1997.
Entrance fees have supported a wide range of projects that improve the park and visitor experiences, including trailhead signs, developing and installing exhibits in visitor centers, improving park water systems, providing ranger-led programs, and improving accessibility. An example is the new Shark Valley Visitor Center, which was partially funded with fees.
WHAT: Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks will increase entrance fees for visitors in order to fund important maintenance and improvement projects within the park.
WHEN: Starting on October 1, 2016
WHERE: Everglades National Park
