Capitol Reef National Park asks public to increase camping fees


Would you pay more to camp in Capitol Reef National Park?

The park in south-central Utah is seeking public comment about a camping fee increase starting next year, a Monday press release said.

For the Fruita Campground, with 71 campsites, the nightly rate would increase from $20 to $25. If you have a lifetime pass, it would increase from $10 to $12.50. And for the Group Campsite, with a 40 person capacity, fares would increase $100 to $125. 

“The proposed fee increase would bring the park in line with other parks that provide similar services and experiences,” the press release said.

According to the park, “100%” of fares are used for visitor services, repairs, maintenance, improvements and resource protection. Other fees collected covered tree planting, water stations, installing exhibits and signage, and making improvements to the Fruita Campground.
