Fees & Reservations

All park visitors, including walkers and joggers, are required to purchase a recreational use pass upon entering Vicksburg National Military Park.

Vicksburg National Military Park participates in the congressionally authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act. Under this program, Vicksburg keeps 100% of all fees collected. Funds generated by the fees are used to accomplish projects the parks have been unable to fund through annual Congressional allocations. Entrance fees help support projects in the monument to improve the experience for visitors.
