FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Rocky Mountain National Park is seeking public feedback on a proposal to increase the cost of entrance passes and camping fees.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports (http://noconow.co/1vKvfzG ) the park wants to add a $20 single-day pass to its existing options of entrance passes. Most visitors’ least-expensive option now is to buy a $20 pass that’s valid for seven consecutive days.

Under the proposal, the park would add the $20 pass good for one day and increase the cost of a seven-day pass to $30. It also is proposing an annual park pass increase from $40 to $50, and eventually to $60 by 2017.

Campground fees would increase from $20 per night to $26 each night.

The fees fund projects that involve park shuttles, hazard tree mitigation and enhancements to camping, picnicking and hiking trails.
