JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Fees for some activities at Alaska state park facilities are set to increase on Jan. 1.

The Department of Natural Resources says fees will rise for overnight camping and boat launching and for annual parking and boat launching passes.

Daily parking fees at trailheads or other developed areas won’t change.

The department says the cost of an annual parking pass hasn’t changed since 2004 while state park operational costs have risen over 20 percent.

The annual parking pass fee will increase by $10, with a second pass for the same family going up by $5. Annual boat launch fees will go up by $25, with a second pass for a family going up by $10.

Overnight camping and boat launch fees will vary but generally increase by about $5.
