Camp Verde and Clarkdale, AZ – Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments will hold two public meetings in September to discuss a proposed fee increase to their park specific annual pass. The current park pass has been in place since 2015, but does not meet agency fee standards. The proposed fee increase would make the pass $40.00 instead of the current price of $30.00. The purchase of the park specific pass provides entrance for four adults, for both monuments. Children 15 years old and under are admitted for free.
Part of the fee money collected at Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments has been used on site to upgrade the electrical system, to stabilize and reinforce the bookstore floor at the Montezuma Castle Visitor Center and to make the Tuzigoot Visitor Center restrooms ADA compliant. The interpretive signs along the monuments’ trails were also modernized using fee money. Future plans include building a ranger talk area at Tuzigoot with a shade shelter to provide greater comfort for our visitors.
The first meeting will be held at the Montezuma Castle Visitor Center located at 2800 Montezuma Castle Road in Camp Verde on Tuesday, September 12, from 4pm to 6pm. The second meeting will be held at Tuzigoot Visitor Center located at 25 W. Tuzigoot Road in Clarkdale on Wednesday, September 13, from 4pm to 6pm.
Following the public meetings, feedback will determine if the fee increase will be implemented.
