Wind Cave National Park (South Dakota) is now officially cashless for all transactions made with the National Park Service, such as campground fees and cave tours.
As per a report, cash and checks are no longer accepted, only credit or debit cards from Visa, Discover, Master Card, Diners Club, and American Express.
Wind Cave Chief of Interpretation Tom Farrell said most of the National Park system has been transitioning to a cashless system for multiple reasons.
Farrell said that Wind Cave became partly cashless earlier this year after their online reservations system was made functional, as payment is required at the time.
According to its Facebook page, aside from cave tours and campground fees, all Interagency Passes fees will only be by credit, debit, or digital payment.
Farrell said that whether it is collected with cash, check, card, or digital, the cave tour and campground fees are an essential part of Wind Cave’s project budget.
