Entrance Fees for Commerical Vehicles

Entrance fees for commerical vehicles is based on vehicle capacity, not the amount of passengers on board.
  • 1-6 capacity person vehicles: $25.00
  • 7-25 person capacity vehicles: $40.00
  • Over 25 person capacity vehicles: $100.00
Interagency passes do not apply to passengers on commercial vehicles. As stated on the back of all Interagency Passes: "Admit the pass owner(s) and any accompanying passengers in a private, non- commercial vehicle at per vehicle areas..." it is clearly prohibitied to use these passes for commercial entry.

Single vehicle entry feees (non-commerical) cannot be applied to commerical use entrance rates. By policy, "a vehicle fee is an entrance fee for entry of a single, private, non-commercial vehicle and its passengers." Private vehicles or individuals with entry receipts are non-transferrable to any other entity or organization and may not be used to waive commercial vehicle entrance fees.
