Cabrillo National Monument announces fee increase

SAN DIEGO (Press Release) — Cabrillo National Monument will be increasing the daily park entrance fee on January 1, 2018 for non-commercial vehicles. The commercial vehicle fees are not changing.  The new rates for vehicles will be $15.00 per vehicle (good for everyone in the vehicle,) walk-ins/bicyclists $7.00 per person and motorcycles will be $10.00. Entrance fees are valid for seven days. The annual Cabrillo Park Pass will be $30.00. The NPS began collecting entrance fees at Cabrillo in 1987. This is only the second increase in 31 years.

Eighty percent of the entrance fees collected at Cabrillo stay at the park. These funds preserve natural and cultural resources, improve visitor facilities, and provide educational and recreational opportunities. Projects funded with entrance fees include the development of a curriculum-based education program for the San Salvador Ship in partnership with the Maritime Museum of San Diego; construction of restroom facilities at the intertidal area; and construction of the Whale and Kelp Forest Overlook. Projects planned for the future include installation of 38 new wayside exhibits, repair of the damaged Bayside Trail; production of a new signature film for Cabrillo; improved accessibility to park structures and resources; and an upgrade of informational displays for the WWI and WWII bunkers.

Entrance fees are never charged for visitors under 16 years of age, or holders of the America the Beautiful Pass, Federal Recreational Senior Pass, Access Pass, Military Pass or 4th Grader Pass. All of these passes may be obtained at the Cabrillo NM entrance station during business hours.

The National Park Service and Cabrillo National Monument also have annual Fee Free Days each year.  For the year of 2018 the fee free days are:

January 15: Martin Luther King Jr. Day

April 21: First Day of National Park Week

September 22: National Public Lands Day

November 11: Veterans Day.
