National parks are near and dear to our hearts - and travel. We’re inspired by this rallying call from the National Parks Conservation Association:
“The Trump administration has proposed massive fee increases in 17 national parks – increases that could see entrance fees jump from $25 to $70 during peak season.
If this administration is serious about supporting national parks, it needs to instead work with Congress to come up with stable, sensible, long-term solutions to address the maintenance backlog – not put the burden on park visitors.
Entrance fees are part of how we all do our part to support the parks – they improve the visitor experience and help protect parks. But parks are for ALL of us, not just the people who can afford large, sudden increases in price. Not even one family should be priced out of our parks.”
