National Park Service - Fees and Security
Each adult ticket includes a $3 National Park entrance fee. Entrance fees are used for the operation of National Parks. Bearers of the following passes are charged at the National Park Passport prices: National Park, Golden Age, Golden Access and the Annual Park Pass. Visitors must present their National Park pass at time of check-in. The National Park Entrance fee portion of the ticket purchase will be refunded to the credit card charged within 24 hours of the date of visit. Ticket prices are subject to change.
As a Fee Demonstration Area authorized by Congress, 80% of all entrance and user fees collected at Jefferson National Expansion Memorial are retained by the park. The remaining 20% of funds are made available for use by all other National Parks. These funds are used for the preservation and maintenance of historic and natural resources, as well as for improved visitor services.
The Agency is authorized to collect entrance and user fees on behalf of the National Park Service. Transaction fees charged for other services are at the discretion of Bi-State Development Agency.
