Cedar Breaks National Monument Announces Fee Increase

Cedar Breaks National Monument in Utah announced an increase in entrance and campground fees starting today, April 1, aimed at improving both operational needs and maintenance projects. This adjustment marks the first revision of the fee structure since 2018.

According to a press release, the revised fee schedule introduces a seven-day vehicle pass priced at $25.00, a per-person or bicycle pass at $15.00, a motorcycle pass for $20.00, and a specific annual pass for Cedar Breaks at $45.00. For campers, the Point Supreme Campground will offer a standard site with showers, excluding electricity, at $30.00, and a walk-in tent site with similar amenities for $20.00.

This fee overhaul serves as a strategic effort to enhance park operations and visitor services. While basic park functions are sustained through Congressional appropriations, the generated recreation fees are pivotal for funding new projects and the ongoing upkeep of park facilities.

The public had the opportunity to voice their opinions on the proposed changes during a 30-day comment period in October, facilitated through the Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website. This process is integral to the park’s planning and compliance strategy, offering valuable insights and preferences from the community regarding the park’s future.

The adjustments are sanctioned under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (FLREA), permitting the park to retain 80% of the collected fees. These funds are earmarked for visitor-centric projects, including trail maintenance, visitor programs, and infrastructure improvements, such as barrier fence replacement at Pt. Supreme. The allocation of these funds underscores a commitment to enhancing visitor experiences through improved services, interpretive exhibits, and educational programming.

In 2022, the monument’s visitors contributed an estimated $50 million to local economies in the gateway regions, supporting 653 jobs and generating $62.2 million in economic output. This financial footprint highlights the monument’s significant role in supporting local communities.
