Grand Canyon National Park Fees image image

Entrance fees

During peak season, lines at the South Entrance Station can be long and slow-moving. Paying cash speeds the process, as does buying a park pass in advance.

• Entrance fees are $25 per private vehicle or $12 per person entering the park by public transportation, on foot, by bicycle or via the Colorado River. Admission is for seven days and includes both rims. There are no refunds due to inclement weather.

• U.S. residents age 62 or older may obtain a Golden Age Passport for a one-time fee of $10.

• Persons holding a current Golden Eagle Passport (obtainable for $65 at any national park) are admitted free. The passports are now attainable at the entrance station and Canyon View Information Plaza.

• Annual Grand Canyon passports, valid for the calendar year, are available for $50.

• U.S. residents who have a permanent physical, mental or sensory impairment may apply in person for a Golden Access Passport.

• The National Parks Pass, which can be used at any national park, is available for $80.

Backcountry Fees

• Overnight backcountry permits are $10, plus $5 per person impact fee for each night camped below the rim and $5 per group for each night camped above the rim.

• For the frequent hiker there is an annual pass, which is $25.

• Backcountry hikers may still purchase a one-year frequent hiker membership for $25. It will be valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.

• The $10 fee will not be refunded on cancellations. The National Park Service said fees paid to the Backcountry Office are non-refundable.

For additional information about backcountry permits, as well as general park information, call 928-638-7888 or 928-638-7875 between 1-5 p.m. weekdays.
