You have to admit, $10 for a lifetime pass is ridiculously low. If we want nice things, we should be willing to pay for them.

Won't affect me. I already have the free lifetime NPS ACCESS Disability Pass.

Even if they charged a hundred bucks for it, it wouldn't amount to diddly squat on your taxes.

Actually, at this point the price seems to be the same. A friend of mine got his at Hyde Park and it was $10.00. If you order online, they charge an extra $10.00 for shipping and handling. I can't remember where I got mine. Probably online.

This story was a hoax last year, I don't see anything on the NPS web sites that would make me believe that this is anything else.

2017 would be a good time to visit Canadian National Parks.
Free admission to celebrate 150 years, plus the US dollar is pretty strong,,,
right now anyway,,,

If they raise the fee from $10 to $80, it will still be a super bargain. But I might have cause to complain that the government only appreciates me 1/8 as much...

In the past 50 years, I've seen the price at one NF campground go from $5 a night, with a real breathing ranger collecting the money and on site to the same NF campground renting out the property to a private business, and the rent went up to $22 a night...Now with our Golden Age pass that went from $2.50 to $11 in 50 years...not bad. Let's see I was making $1.10 per hour, 50 years ago, and now I get (hope IRS don's see this) $25 per hour...I guess I'm a bit ahead of the game....

I got mine last August for $10. Must have doubled in price since then.
