Your Fee Dollars At Work

Your Fee Dollars at Work

Thank you for supporting your public lands! Eighty percent of recreational fees collected in the monument are reinvested right here at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. The monument uses revenues from fees for all kinds of projects, including deferred maintenance projects, that improve visitor facilities like park roads, buildings, utilities, trails, and more.

On average Little Bighorn collects a little over $500,000 in recreation fees per year which goes directly into projects benefiting the visitor experience and deferred maintenance projects. Over time, this adds up to dozens of projects completed using fee money. Please see the list of project below to see exactly where your Little Bighorn entry fee money helps us preserve and protect your monument for you. To see where your fee dollars help when visiting other parks please visit the NPS Fee Dollars at Work page. Thanks again for supporting your public lands.
