Buy Your Pass at the Park or Online

All park visitors are required to purchase a recreational use pass upon entering Bryce Canyon National Park. All passes are available for purchase at our entrance booths and can also be purchased online.

Bryce Canyon National Park participates in the congressionally authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act. Under this program, parks keep 80% of all fees collected; the remaining 20% will be deposited in a special account to be used in parks where fees are not collected. Funds generated by the fees are used to accomplish projects the parks have been unable to fund through annual Congressional allocations. Entrance fees help support projects in the park to improve the experience for visitors. For more information, call (435) 834-5322.
