Park Service may hike entrance fees

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — The National Park Service is floating a steep increase to entrance fees at 17 of its most popular sites next year.

Visitors to the Grand Canyon and other parks would be charged $70 per vehicle, up from the current $30 fee. At others, the hike is $25 to $70.

A 30-day public comment period opened Tuesday.

The proposal comes less than two years after many of the parks that charge entrance fees became more costly. The rationale is the same this time around — to address a maintenance backlog and infrastructure projects.
