MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Crater Lake National Park is proposing a hike in its vehicle entrance fee from $10 to $25.

Park officials say the 150 percent increase is needed to account for inflation and raise money for maintenance projects.

The vehicle entry fee allows occupants into the park for seven days. The park is proposing to raise the individual entrance fee from $5 to $12 and to quadruple the cost of a motorcycle pass from $5 to $20.

The Medford Mail-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1tojqty ) the fee increase would put Crater Lake on par with other national parks of its size. It could be implemented by early 2015.

The National Park Service is accepting public comments until late December.

Crater Lake last raised its entrance fee in 1997.
