Where do my fees go?
All user fees remain in this program and go toward services, maintenance and improvements. Services include staffing the Entrance Station, campground and backcountry patrols, educational displays, brochures and maps. General maintenance includes upkeep of campgrounds, toilet facilities, trails, fences, signs and associated materials.

User fees also sustain an apprenticeship program that provides work-study opportunities for local high school students. Collected fees help to support the operation of Grand County Search and Rescue. Funds are also used for matching grants to improve trailheads, trails and campground facilities.
