Petroglyph National Monument is not a "Fee Park" and does not charge Entrance fees. However, because this monument is co-managed with the City of Albuquerque, the city does charge a nominal parking fee at Boca Negra Canyon. All other trail systems and the visitor center are free to visit.
Parking Fees (per vehicle) at Boca Negra Canyon:
Single vehicle rate: $1 weekdays/$2 weekends
Commercial bus rate: $25 for small buses (seating capacity of 25 or less)
$50 for full-size motor coaches (seating capacity of more than 25)
The City of Albuquerque honors all valid Federal Lands Passes. There are no entrance fees for other areas within Petroglyph National Monument. Commercial fees are charged by the City of Albuquerque. Please phone the city at (505) 873-6620 for rate information.
For your convenience, we issue the free Access Pass, Annual Military pass, and the Every Kid in a Park 4th grader pass. Petroglyph National Monument does sell the Lifetime Senior Pass ($80) at the visitor center. We can only accept cash as payment for a pass. Personal checks, credit or debit cards are not accepted. Please inquire at the visitor center to purchase one of these passes.
