Entrance Passes

Standard Entrance Pass

$20.00–$35.00

You are required to pay an entrance fee in order to access Grand Teton National Park. Under the authorized Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA), many national parks are allowed to keep 80% of all fees collected and to use that money to fund important projects that improve visitor services and protect natural and cultural resources for future generations. In Grand Teton National Park, your fees allow us to spend approximately $9 million per year on park projects such as roads, trails, pathways, accessibility, restoration of wildlife habitat, rehabilitation and stabilization of historic structures, and visitor maps.

Park entrance fee for 7 days for a private, non-commercial vehicle.

Park entrance for 7 days per private motorcycle.

Park entrance fee for 7 days for each visitor 16 years and older entering by foot, bicycle, ski, etc.

Schools or other bona fide educational institutions (accredited, officially recognized, or tax exempt for educational purposes) may request an educational fee waiver. The fee waiver will allow qualifying groups free entry into the park for educational or scientific purposes. Prior approval required before entry to park. See additional Education Fee Waiver page.
