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.

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
