GTNP Permit Rates Increase

GTNP Winter

Some activities in Grand Teton National Park will cost more to do beginning next year thanks to revisions being made in cost recovery rates for permits.  Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says the last time those rates were adjusted was twelve years ago, and the rates currently being charged no longer cover the operational management of the programs. Skaggs says “Cost recovery doesn’t include just the cost of issuing those permits, it also covers the monitoring of the permitted activity, and the restoration of sites in the back country and also for the special use permits if that becomes necessary. Revisions to the rates for permits include $25 for back country permits and an additional $10 for advanced reservations.  Previously, the advanced reservations cost $25 and no fee for the permits themselves.  Other fee increases include $100 for weddings rather than $50, $175 for special events which had previously not required a charge, and $275 for commercial filming involving fewer than six months and $325 for filming for six to 12 months.  Previously, those charges were $200 projects for regardless of length.  Skaggs says approximately 250–300 special park use applications are received annually, all of which require review.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
