DENALI PARK -- The National Park Service is changing the way it charges visitors to Denali National Park and Preserve. Visitors now will be charged per head, not per vehicle.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says after reviewing public comments, the park service has decided to eliminate a $20-a-vehicle entrance fee and instead charge a flat $10-a-person entrance fee for visitors age 16 and older.
That means a vehicle with four adults in it will have to pay $40 instead of $20.
The Park Service says the vehicle fee was eliminated because the park does not collect the fee at an entrance station like the majority of national parks around the U.S.
The change takes place Sunday.
