Backcountry camping permits go online
The previous system of purchasing paper permits at the park website or designated locations will be eliminated effective January 10th.
There is a $6 permit fee, plus a $9 recreation fee per person.
For example, the total permit cost for a group of two campers will be $24.
The fee is not dependent on the number of nights and the usual entrance fee also applies.
Backcountry campers with a start date of January 11 or after will be required to purchase permits online: https://www.recreation.gov/permits/4675336.
