Mesa Verde National Park is a participant in the congressionally authorized Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. The program authorizes participating parks to keep 80% of the entrance fees collected. These funds are used for backlogged maintenance needs, repair projects, interpretation and education, signage, and natural and historical resource preservation. The remaining 20% is distributed to parks that are not part of the program but have similar needs, and other service-wide initiatives.
