The vehicle entrance pass is sold in the form of a dated cash register receipt and admits one privately owned, non-commercial vehicle into Saguaro National Park. This includes passenger cars, trucks, vans, recreational vehicles, campers, or converted buses used for private, recreational purposes.

Individual ($15.00)
