Your Fee Dollars At Work

Guld Islands National Seashore participates in the congressionally authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act. Under this program, parks keep 80 percent of all fees collected;the remaining 20 percent will be deposited in a special account to be used in parks where fees are not collected. Funds generated by the fees are used to accomplish projects the parks have been unable to fund through yearly Congressional allocations.

What does that mean for our national parks and for you?

The NPS is authorized to use entrance and recreation fees for a variety of items related to your experience, such as:

  • Repair, maintenance, and facility enhancement related directly to visitor enjoyment, visitor access, and health and safety, such as:

  • Habitat restoration directly related to wildlife-dependent recreation, including hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, and photography.

  • Law enforcement related to public use and recreation

  • Direct operating or capital costs associated with the recreation fee program to pay for entrance station and campground staff

  • Fee management agreements with gateway communities to provide emergency medical services
