WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) - Glacier National Park has announced that it will raise its fees for entrance and front-country camping starting in November.

The Missoulian reports (http://bit.ly/1OBxCy5 ) that winter-season entrance fees will jump from $15 a vehicle to $20 starting Nov. 1. The summer fee will be $30 per vehicle in May, up from $25.

Officials estimate the change will generate an additional $500,000 annually. Park spokeswoman Denise Germann says the money will go to visitor services and facilities, programs at campgrounds, trail repairs, restroom improvements, wildlife habitat restoration, road maintenance and the park’s shuttle bus.

Other cost hikes include the annual park pass, which will cost $45 in January and make a second leap to $50 in January 2017.

The last time Glacier raised its entrance fee was 2006.
