National Park Month: How to access your parks!

Monday we talked about the National Parks that are available for us to enjoy here in Wyoming. There are fees to use the parks and several of the services and facilities. However, there are some money-saving options out there! Here they are:

  • You can choose to pay as you use the parks. Day-use fees run anywhere from $5 per person/vehicle to $25 per person/vehicle.
  • Annual Pass: These cost $80 and can be obtained by anyone.
  • Senior Pass: These are available to those age 62 and over and cost $10. This is a lifetime pass, so only needs to be purchased once.
  • Access Pass: This is a free pass available to anyone with a permanent disability.

Any of these passes can be obtained at any federal recreation site. A pass covers entrance fees for a driver and all passengers in a personal vehicle at per vehicle fee areas (or up to four adults at sites that charge per person). Children age 15 and under are admitted free.

This information is provided courtesy of the Wyoming AgrAbility Project. For more information, visit our website or call toll-free at 866-395-4986.
