ASHFORD, Wash. (AP) - Mount Rainier National Park officials say several important park fees will be increasing Friday.

Park officials say the park’s single vehicle rate will increase from $15 to $20. That fee grants entry for one vehicle and passengers for seven consecutive days. The vehicle rate will increase again, to $25, on May 27, 2016.

Also on Friday, camping fees for any “single” campsite that can accommodate as many as six people will increase to $20 per night while group camping sites will be $60 per night. The camping rates would not increase again in 2016.

Single campsite fees currently range from $12 to $15 per night while group sites have ranged from $40 to $64.

The per-person walk-up or single bicycle fee will increase from $5 to $10. That fee also grants entry for seven consecutive days.

Entrance fees are not charged for holders of a variety of passes, including the military pass and the senior pass.
