Fees & Passes

America the Beautiful Passes

Little River Canyon National Preserve does not sell these passes, nor do you need them at this park. For more information on the changes for the Senior Passes click here.

The closest area to purchase the Senior Passes is Chickamauga/Chattanooga National Military Park. Interagency passes, such as the Senior Pass, are available for purchase onsite ONLY at the fee station at Lookout Mountain Battlefield (Point Park), Friday through Monday. On Tuesdays, passes are available intermittently, as this is the day that fee staff uses to handle their accounting and administrative duties. If you are planning to purchase one of these Interagency passes during your visit, please call the Lookout Mountain Battlefield (423-821-7786) ahead of time to ensure the fee station will be open. Daily entrance passes can be purchased at the fee both or at the automated fee machine in the gate at Point Park.


Canyon Mouth Picnic Area is the only area with a fee at Little River Canyon National Preserve.

Canyon Mouth Picnic Area has a $3 day-use fee. No matter how many people in the vehicle, the fee is only three dollars. (No checks accepted, only cash or seasonal pass). Seasonal passes can be purchased for $10 and can be purchased in person at the business office or by mail by sending a check for $10 made out to the "National Park Service". Mail to Little River Canyon National Preserve, 4322 Little River Trail NE, Suite 100, Fort Payne, AL 35967. Please make sure that your name and correct return address are marked clearly in your request. Also, in the comment section of the check, write "CMP Annual Pass."

There are no fees to tour the Scenic Drive, Martha Falls, Little River Falls or the Backcountry Area.
