In the past 16 years, over $60 million from fees has been spent on campground improvements, new restrooms, trail maintenance, an updated park film, enhanced trailhead bulletin boards, critical hazard tree mitigation and much, much more. Fees at the park have added approximately 30 percent to the park's annual budget for important repairs, renovations, improvements, and resource restoration. Park staff sell approximately 32,000 annual passes a year.
The annual pass is $40 and can be purchased at any park entrance station, or by calling (970) 586-1206 to make a credit card purchase. The Rocky Mountain National Park annual pass is a great deal. If you visit twice a year it pays for itself," said Superintendent Vaughn Baker, "plus, eighty percent of those fees stay right here in Rocky Mountain National Park."
