I just read that the entrance fee to Crater Lake National Park is being raised next year to $30 a car. It wont affect me as I don't go down there but I know others on this site do. I think I read about it on oregonlive.
God no — although the differences used to be greater. A few years ago, Pinnacles was $5 while Yosemite was $20.
Most are in the $20-$35 range now, but a few are still free (e.g., Great Basin & North Cascades).
This is happening at many national parks. Here is the full scoop, from the 2018 announcement: https://www.nps.gov/orgs/1207/04-12-201 ... e-fees.htm
As part of its ongoing efforts to address aging park infrastructure and improve the visitor experience, the National Park Service (NPS) announced today changes to the entrance fees charged at national parks. The changes, which come in response to public comments on a fee proposal released in October 2017, will modestly increase entrance fees to raise additional revenue to address the $11.6 billion in deferred maintenance across the system of 417 parks, historic and cultural sites, and monuments.
