(Port Angeles) – Olympic National Park is joining other national parks in proposing increases in entrance and other fees.

In August, the National Park Service released an updated entrance fee rate schedule for all NPS units that charge entrance fees. The entrance fee at Olympic National Park is proposed to increase to $25 for a seven-day vehicle pass.

Additionally, ONP is proposing raising campground fees to between $15 and $25 dollars and adding three dollars to the wilderness pass.

ONP officials say fee revenue at Olympic are used to improve visitor facilities and services, from trail and wilderness bridge repair to new visitor center exhibits to operating the park’s wilderness information program.

Most fees at the park have remained the same since 2006.
