BROWNSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Mammoth Cave National Park officials want to increase fees for tours and programs they offer.

Superintendent Tracy Stakely tells WBKO-TV (https://bit.ly/28JxRGS) that the fee increase would begin in January, and park officials want feedback before the changes are implemented.

The new fees include a $6 fee per student per student for the environmental education program, which was previously free. Fees on customized programs for the higher education group would be $15 to $25 depending on the hourly length.

There’s also a $1 increase on the existing educational cave tour rate, making it $6 per person.

Stakely says fees have funded renovations to the concessions facilities, backcountry repairs and other improvements.



The park is accepting comments on the proposed fee increase until July 18 through the National Park Service planning website and via mail.
