Most locations are only accepting cash or checks. Checks should be made to the National Park Service. Locations normally do not accept credit cards because of the credit card service fees, and they are doing this as a convenience for residents.

Remember that most locations will close early on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and will be closed on Christmas Day.

Proceeds from the sale of the passes allow the National Park Service to continue maintenance projects within the park.
