Park Service to raise fees in 117 parks, but that still won’t solve its looming problem


The National Park Service decided Thursday that it will raise fees at 117 national park sites, but the increases are quite modest compared to the previous proposal.

Facing a more than $11 billion backlog in the upkeep of national parks, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke previously proposed raising fees to $70 in 17 of the most popular parks like Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon. 

The government allowed the public to weigh in on the fee increases, and the responses showed overwhelming opposition to the dramatic increase.
