The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources published notice in the January 21 PA Bulletin of revisions to the schedule of fees charged for certain activities in state parks.
Fees will be increased for larger multifamily overnight facilities, non-Commonwealth residents for the base night of camping, swimming pools and increased transaction fees for online reservations.
Many of the changes adopt a range of fees, instead of one fee, to allow DCNR to charge higher rates on peak use days.
DCNR said the new price schedule, which is comparable to those of state parks in neighboring states, is needed to increase revenue to the Bureau. In addition to offsetting inflation, it narrows the gap between State Parks and private facilities, resulting in a more favorable competitive climate for the private sector.For more information, visit DCNR’s website, Click Here to sign up for the Resource newsletter, Click Here to be part of DCNR’s Online Community, Click Here to hook up with DCNR on other social media-- Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr.
