Fee Increase Proposal
Lava Beds National Monument would like your feedback on possible fee increases in 2015. The current park entrance fees have been in place at Lava Beds since 2003.
Fee dollars at Lava Beds National Monument have made possible the development and installation of park-wide wayside exhibits and road signs, rehabilitation of the Schonchin Butte fire lookout, and vault toilets at Merrill cave, Skull cave and Gillem's Camp. The additional revenue raised by a fee increase would be used to continue replacement of outdated waysides, develop new interpretive materials, and fund other visitor service projects.
Entrance fees are not charged to persons under 16 years of age or holders of the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Passes including the Annual Pass, Senior Pass, Access Pass or Military Pass. Lava Beds annual passes are also valid for one year from the month of purchase. These passes may be obtained at Lava Beds.
Campground fees will remain the same, at $10 per night / per site, accommodating up to eight people per site. The fee remains $5 per night / per site with a valid Senior or Access Pass. The one group site for groups of 15-40 people will remain at $3 per person / per night, with a maximum cost of $60.
