Recreation Fees increase at Red Rock Canyon January 1, 2023

LAS VEGAS – Recreation fees at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area will increase starting January 1, 2023.

The fee increase will put prices at $20 for passenger vehicles, $8 for bicycles, $25 for individual campsites, $12 for walk-in campsites and $80 for group campsites. The fee for a Red Rock Canyon Annual Support Pass will increase to $50 per year. Fees will not increase for pedestrians and motorcycles.

“The core basis of an adjustment in the recreation fees is to ensure the Bureau of Land Management meets its conservation, recreation, public enjoyment and visitor experience management goals for present and future generations identified in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Resource Management Plan and Record of Decision,” said Boris Poff, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area Manager.

The recreation fee charged at the 13-Mile Scenic Drive last increased in 2018. Since that time, BLM has added amenities, activities, and services to improve visitor experiences.

The BLM held public meetings on a proposed fee increase in September 2017 and solicited public input for 30 days starting the end of August 2017. The 2023 increase was recommended by the Mojave-Southern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council to the BLM Nevada State Director in January 2018 and approved by the BLM Nevada State Director in March 2018.
