Price going up for senior national park pass

  1. Thanks for posting this. Bob got his recently, and we got to use at the Redwoods this month. Sorry to hear it’s going up, but if that’s what it takes to help the parks, then ok.

    1. It’s a really good deal if there’s even the remotest chance that you’ll visit a park someday. But like you, I wouldn’t begrudge them the extra income. They need every penny.

  2. Seems pretty reasonable to me, bit over a $1.50 per week, for one year.

    Nobody should complain, and after 10 years it works out at 15 cents, theres not much else that you can get for that price, even if you use it rarely or never, it’s there and you’ve got it and the money is going to good use.


  3. Great reminder – had me ready to get that done… then read the age restriction line 😉 Oh well, they do need every penny, so i will keep buying annual passes and supporting Rocky Mountain Conservancy till a Lifetime pass can be mine!

      1. What a great surprise to drive up to the window holding out a $20 bill. “Would you prefer to pay just $10 and get a lifetime pass?” Hell, yeah! Talk about a no-brainer.

      2. Nah, Park Service rangers, employees, and volunteers are always nice, especially near the visitor centers. But being in those beautiful mountains all day would help anyone’s disposition.

... and that's my two cents
