Make your voice heard: NPS fees, CUAs

The U.S. National Park Service announced April 12 that it would apply a $5 increase to all parks currently collecting entrance fees. It also recently shared revised plans to Commercial Use Authorization fees and requirements for motorcoach groups traveling to national parks, which will be implemented Oct. 1, 2019.

It’s crucial that we engage Congress on these issues. It’s also important that the tourism industry remain in coordination with the administration and that Congress is aware of our concerns.

Reach out to your members of Congress with the letter we’ve prepared by clicking the button below. We’ve included areas for you to fill in specific information and the potential impacts that the fee increases may have on your business.
