National Park Service News
April 24th the National Park Service announced their fee increase plan for road-based CUA holders that will go into effect on October 1, 2019.
The good news is our comments influenced their original proposal and instead of an over 600% increase we are left with a 150% increase per visitor and a 20% increase in application fees.
Here's how it breaks out for Grand Canyon:
The visitor per person gate fee will become the same amount used for road-based CUA per person gate fees. Currently CUA holders pay $8 per person this fee will go to $20 per person to match the individual park entrance fee effective October 1, 2019. (Please note these fees can not be applied to the individual's park pass nor can an individuals park pass/annual pass be apply to a CUA holders entrance fee.)
The current annual application is $250 this fee will increase to $300. This fee will be the same across all parks.
You will also be required to submit your annual CUA reports after each operating season.
Note: There will be no additional per vehicle nor will there be a fee based on annual gross sales as originally proposed.
