Park fee hike would cost Montana gateway communities over $3M per year in lost spending: study

A proposal by the U.S. Department of Interior to more than double the cost of a seven-day pass to national parks might cause a big economic hit to the “gateway” communities around these important tourist attractions, according to researchers at the University of Montana.

Economists at the Institute for Tourism and Recreation Research (ITRR) found that the fee increase would cause an annual loss of $3.4 million in spending in the communities within 60 miles around Yellowstone National Park. And that predicted loss would be just from the price increase to seven-day passes.
