Fees could increase at Colorado National Monument
Colorado National Monument announced today it is proposing to increase entrance and camping fees beginning next year.
The monument is inviting the public to offer feedback on the proposal through June 30.
The National Park Service would raise fees for a seven-day pass from $7 to $10 per car and from $4 to $5 per hiker or bicyclist. An annual pass would increase from $20 to $25. One-night campground fees would double from $10 to $20.
Fees for large buses or vans would remain the same.
Park officials say entrance fees haven’t increased in five years, while campground fees haven’t increased in 15 years.
