America the Beautiful Passes
The Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act established a new pass program to replace the National Park Pass and Golden Eagle, Golden Age, and Golden Access Passports. The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass program provides a number of pass options for the public to use at federal recreation sites where entrance or standard amenity fees are charged.

Commercial Fees

If you are conducting an income generating tour of the park, you are subject to commercial tour fees. The fee amount varies by vehicle size:
Large tour bus with capacity of 26 or more: $150 (for 7 days)
Small bus with capacity of 16-25: $60 (for 7 days)
Van with capacity of 7-15: $50 (for 7 days)
Passenger vehicle with capacity of 1-6: $20 (for 7 days)

A commercial tour consists of one or more persons traveling on an itinerary that has been packaged, priced, or sold for leisure/recreational purposes by an organization that realizes financial gain through the provision of the service. Falling within this definition are tours which require the use of a vehicle: bus, van, or sedan as the primary means of transport during the road-based tour. The tour operator is using National Park Service roads as the primary means of accomplishing the tour.

WARNING. Removal of petrified wood or any natural or cultural object is strictly prohibited and punishable by federal law. Make sure all passengers are aware of park regulations and that they follow resource protection and safety guidelines. The tour guides may be held responsible for the actions of their clients.

Noncommercial Fees

Organized, noncommercial groups are charged $10/person. Excluded from the per person charge are a driver, a guide, anyone 15 years and under, and passengers who have any of the above mentioned federal passes.
