Effective in April, BCGNP will raise the entry fee from $15 to $20. Campground and MC fees are not included in the fee increase.

Is this an indication that the fees at the 17 Big Parks are likely?

Just one more reason to think about getting the Annual Pass - RV'ing is on the Upswing...........

FWIW Bryce Canyon NP upped their camping fees a few years back. From $18 to $30 for the North CG A and B loops. $20 for the rest. We figured they were trying to cover the cost of the new bathrooms and the asphalt walking/cycling path built towards the town proper. Cost of upgraded amenities. Wish they'd redo the showers.
I don't think the entry fee increased, but we have the America the Beautiful pass, and don't really pay attention to entry fees.

They're all going up, to the point where it will only make sense to have an annual pass:

There was also a segment on 9News/KUSA Denver last night; stated that the fee increase was at the local level, meaning a park decision. The purpose, however, is the same as the "Big 17" increase. A backlog of maintenance work. Unlike the comments for the $70 increase, the majority of those who commented about BCGNP increasing fees by $5 were in favour.
