Entrance Fee Waiver

Park entrance fees can be waived for educational groups from accredited institutions, when class curriculum relates to park resources and a fee waiver letter has been submitted. As students are already free, the waiver is meant to cover the cost of chaperone admission up to a maximum of one adult per three students. For those who do not wish to complete the fee waiver or for adults in excess of the one to three ratio the cost of entrance is $10 per person and should be paid at the visitor center front desk upon arrival.
