Fees & Passes

Overview of entrance requirements

Free
No entrance pass required

An entrance pass is not required to access Virgin Islands National Park.

Other National Park Service sites may require an entrance pass or fee. Depending on your trip plans, an interagency pass may save you money.

Trunk Bay charges an Expanded Amenity Fee of $5.00/person ages 16 and up from sunrise until sunset. Expanded Amenity Fees, such as the fee at Trunk Bay, are not waived on the "Fee Free Days" that are indicated below. The fee in the dropdown below titled "Private Vehicle" is for boaters' use of overnight moorings, not for vehicles such as cars, trucks, or SUV's. Virgin Islands National Park does not charge fees for private vehicles entering the park via roadways. Overnight mooring fees must be paid prior to spending the night. Mooring fee payments should be made on a night-by-night basis. Overnight stays are limited to 7 nights per bay and no more than 30 nights per year. Payment stations can be found at the following locations: Cruz Bay Finger Pier, Caneel Bay, Francis Bay, Leinster Bay, Saltpond Bay, and Great Lameshur Bay. Credit or debit card is the preferred method of payment for all fees at Virgin Islands National Park.
