Did you know that the fees you pay when visiting Grand Teton National Park support the visitor services you require today, and protect park resources for future generations?
Under the authorized Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA), national parks are allowed to keep 80% of all fees collected and to use that money to fund important projects that improve visitor services and protect natural and cultural resources for future generations. In Grand Teton National Park, your fees allow us to spend approximately $4 million per year on park projects such as roads, trails, multi-use pathway, accessibility, restoration of wildlife habitat, rehabilitation and stabilization of historic structures, visitor maps, and brochures.
Entrance FeesThese fees provide the visitor with a 7-day entrance permit for Grand Teton National Park. Yellowstone National Park collects a separate entrance fee. Visitors to both parks should consider an America the Beautiful—The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass.
No entrance fee is charged for the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway.
Grand Teton Entrance Fee - Private Vehicle - $35.00

A Special Invitation for 5th Graders
On October 28, Department of Interior issued SO 3386 to extend a special invitation to 5th graders through August 2021. This fee waiver for 5th grade students is not an extension or part of the Every Kid Outdoors 4th Grade Pass Program.
Many 4th graders missed out on using their Every Kid Outdoors Annual 4th Grade Pass during the 2019-2020 school year. A new voucher, now available for 5th grade students for the rest of the 2020-2021 school year, ensures that 5th graders and their families will have free access to national parks and other federal lands managed by the Department of the Interior, U.S. Forest Service and Army Corp of Engineers from October 28, 2020 through August 31, 2021.
5th grade students will use a voucher for each visit and will not receive a durable pass.
Information and official rules are available on the 5th Graders in Parks page.
Free Access for Veterans and Gold Star Families
Effective Veterans Day—November 11, 2020—veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and Gold Star Families will have free access to national parks and other federal recreation areas managed by the Department of the Interior, U.S. Forest Service and the Army Corps of Engineers.
Secretary’s Order 3387 established the program in gratitude to those who have served our nation, especially the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Free access means free entrance to national parks and federal wildlife refuges that normally charge entrance fees, as well as free use of standard amenities like day use, individual picnic sites, etc. at other participating federal lands. The fee waiver does not cover expanded amenity or user fees for activities such as camping, transportation, special recreation permits or special tours, or fees for organized groups or concession-operated facilities or activities.
Education Fee Waiver
Schools or other bona fide educational institutions (accredited, officially recognized, or tax exempt for educational purposes) may request an educational fee waiver. The fee waiver will allow qualifying groups free entry into the park for educational or scientific purposes. Learn more about the Education Fee Waiver.
