Houghton, MI –Since 1997 Isle Royale National Park has charged a $4 per person daily user fee. In 2015 Isle Royale began the process of updating its fee program to comply with federal regulations, allow acceptance of all Federal Recreation Passes, and study changing the user fee to an entrance fee. Isle Royale is now proposing a fee change and would like any thoughts and comments before a final decision is made. The comment period closes September 30, 2016.
The proposed fee change includes:
Park fees have not increased since 1997 while the costs of managing the park and providing visitor facilities and services has increased significantly. All fees collected at Isle Royale remain in the park and are primarily used for trail and dock maintenance projects. The proposed fee change would take effect starting in the 2017 season.
