Your Fees Benefit the Park

The fees you pay when visiting Yellowstone make a difference! We participate in the Congressionally-authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act. Under this program, parks keep 80% of all fees collected and use that money to fund important projects that improve visitor services and protect resources. Here in Yellowstone, your fees allow us to spend approximately $4 million per year on local projects like:

  • road overlays, patching, chipseal, drainage, and erosion control
  • improved accessibility for people with disabilities
  • increased monitoring and mitigation of park resources
  • campground upgrades
  • rehabilitation of park structures
  • utility systems repairs
