Yellowstone National Park is seeking public comment on a proposal to increase the daily fee charged to stay in campgrounds operated by the National Park Service. For the Mammoth Hot Springs and Norris campgrounds which have flush toilets, the daily fee would be increased from $14 to $20. At Tower Fall, Lewis Lake, Indian Creek, Pebble Creek, and Slough (slew) Creek campgrounds which have vault toilets, the daily camping fee would go from $12 to $15. Individuals who hold a Senior Pass or Access Pass would continue to receive a 50-percent discount on camping fees charged at these National Park Service operated campgrounds.

Under the current rate structure, Yellowstone's campground fees are lower than those charged by local commercial operators, neighboring National Forests, and Grand Teton National Park for campgrounds with similar facilities. The Bridge Bay, Canyon, Grant, and Madison campgrounds and the Fishing Bridge RV Park in Yellowstone are operated by Xanterra Parks & Resorts. Daily camping fees at these sites range from $20.50 to $45.00. They would not be affected by this proposal.

An electronic form to submit comments on the internet can be found online at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/ynpcampfee. Comments may be submitted through the web site, in person or by mail to Visitor Services Office, Attention: Campground Fee Rate Increase, National Park Service, and P. O. Box 168, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming 82190. All comments must be received or postmarked by midnight, February 28, 2013. Comments will not be accepted by phone, fax, or e-mail, and submitted responses may be made publicly available at any time.

This would be the first camping fee increase in nine years. Yellowstone National Park is planning to implement these rate increases on May 1, 2013.

Interesting. I thought Xanterra only operated the Fishing Bridge RV park with hookups.
