How Your Fees Help the Park


The fees you pay when visiting Olympic make a difference. Under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act, Olympic keeps 80 percent of all fees collected and uses that money to improve visitor services and fund critical deferred maintenance projects in the park such as:

  • Maintain and rehabilitate hiking trails
  • Maintain and repair campgrounds, buildings, and picnic areas
  • Maintain and repair park roads and parking areas
  • Improve park accessibility for people with disabilities
  • Provide unique interpretive programs
  • Support and maintain museum exhibits
