Backing down after public outcry, DOI announces much lower NP entrance fee hikes

The Interior Department is abandoning a plan to more than double entrance fees to some of the country's most popular national parks, opting instead to apply a "modest" fee increase to 117 parks beginning this summer in an effort to raise funds for park maintenance.

The announcement Thursday comes after a loud outcry from the public and lawmakers, who were concerned that certain large increases that were initially proposed would price people out of the nation's parks.
