The entrance fee is $25 for a private, noncommercial vehicle; $20 for each snowmobile or motorcycle; or $12 for each visitor 16 and older entering by foot, bike, ski, etc. That gets you a 7 day pass for Yellowstone and Grand Tetons Parks.

Or, an annual pass for the two parks for $50, or the $80 pass that gets you into any national park.

Oddly though, they charge per vehicle, but the pass they give you is a card you sign, and show with photo ID when reentering. Two people can sign each card, and they don't tie them to specific vehicles, so if you're travelling with a group and get creative, you can save a few bucks.

Oh, and I forgot to add:

There are discount rates for Seniors, and free passes available to the blind or disabled. Check the site for details if either of these apply to you.

http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/feesandreservations.htm

You'll find the commercial vehicle rates there too, if you need them.

At that time of year the park will likely be fairly crowded every day.  Monday to Wednesday should be your best bets as you might expect.  However, give the park a call or Xanterra (who operates the lodges onsite) to check in about any special tour groups or events that might add a unique mid-week crowd.  Also, try to avoid the days surrounding Father's Day (June 20th this year).

Have fun!  Numbers you might want to call are below:

NPS Grand Canyon: (928) 638-7888
Xanterra Grand Canyon: (928) 638-2631

While portions of this scenic route remain open year-round, weather permitting, the entire Going-to-the-Sun Road is open for vehicle access from mid-June to mid-September. Before and after this core summer season, sections of the road will be closed.

The Best things in life are free! Fee Free National Park Week announced April 17- 25!

Today, the greatest value in american recreational destinations got even better as the National Park Service announced the first of what we hope will be several free visitation periods this year. Yosemite National Park? Free! Yellowstone National Park? Free! Acadia National Park? Free! Disney World? Not free. Major League Baseball Tickets? Sorry. Not free. Tickets to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D. Not on your life. That skywalk near the grand canyon?

The Federal Access Pass provides access to national parks and other recreation facilities managed by the federal government. It may be issued to U.S. citizens or permanent residents that have been medically determined to have a permanent disability that severely limits one or more major life activities.

Some examples of acceptable documentation include:

    • Statement by a licensed physician;
    • Document issued by Federal agency such as the Veteran's Administration, Social Security Disability Income, or Supplemental Security Income;
    • Document issued by a State agency such as a vocational rehabilitation agency.

An Access Pass can be obtained in person from a participating Federal recreation site or office:

Bureau of Land Management http://www.blm.gov
Bureau of Reclamation http://www.usbr.gov
Fish & Wildlife Service http://www.fws.gov
USDA Forest Service http://www.fs.fed.us

Many of the facilities at Grand Canyon are historic and built before current accessibility standards were set.  The terrain is rugged with narrow, rocky trails and steep cliffs.  Visitors using wheelchairs or who have visual impairments may need assistance. 

The National Park Service provides wheelchairs for temporary day use by park visitors.  No rental fee is charged.  Wheelchairs are usually available on the South Rim at Canyon View Information Plaza, and on the North Rim at the Visitor Center and Grand Canyon Lodge.

All park shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible.

An Accessibility Permit may also be obtained in the park at entrance gates, the visitor center at Canyon View Information Plaza, Yavapai Observation Station, Kolb Studio, El Tovar registration desk, and the Bright Angel Lodge transportation desk.

The Accessibility Permit allows access to some areas closed to private vehicles, and acts as a temporary parking permit for designated parking.

A copy of the Grand Canyon National Park Accessibility Guide may be downloaded here (1.09MB PDF File) Be aware that this document is out of date and is being reprinted. The roads and parking lots around the South Rim Visitor Center have changed. Also, the Desert View parking areas have been changed.

If you have any accessibility questions about Desert View, or elsewhere in the park, you may email the NPS here.

Upon your arrival at the park, a paper copy of the Accessibility Guide is available upon request at Canyon View Information Center, Yavapai Observation Station, Kolb Studio, Tusayan Museum, Desert View Information Center, or North Rim Visitor Center.

Several of the daily Interpretive Ranger Programs are wheelchair accessible. Inquire at visitor centers or look in the "Grand Canyon Guide" newspaper for specifics.

I'm coming to the Grand Tetons April 5-8 and am interested in sleigh rides as well as observing the wildlife.  I also plan on going to Yellowstone Park.  I'm from northern Indiana, so the cold weather and snow won't bother me.  How are the main roads as well as the snow amounts?  Are the temps in the low to mid 30s?

Grand Tetons National Park generally only offers guided snowshoeing tours through the end of March. If there is enough snow it is possible the park may extend their tours. Please call (307) 739-3399 or for more information. You can also visit the following website for more information on cross country skiing and snowshoeing in Grand Tetons.

Sleigh rides are offered in the surrounding communities like Jackson Hole. The following sites are links to several concessioners who provide these services. You will have to check with them to determine whether or not they will still be offering these tours.

http://www.jacksonholewy.net/winter_recreation/sleigh_rides.php

 
 
As far as average temperatures go in both Yellowstone and Grand Teton, you can generally expect temperatures to range from 20 to 40 degrees. Be prepared for some snow. Yellowstone averages roughly 6 inches of snow in April, while Grand Tetons averages 23 inches. 
 
Most of the major roads outside the park are plowed. For status update on roads within the parks please follow the links below or call the following numbers:
 
- In Yellowstone check http://www.nps.gov/yell/conditions.htm or call (307) 344-2117

 

- In Grand Teton check www.nps.gov/grte/planyourvisit/roads.htm or call (307) 739-3614
