BLM To Increase Fees At Red Rock Conservation Area

The Bureau of Land Management announced it is more than doubling the fee to get into the popular Red Rock Conservation Area west of Las Vegas.

The fee increases for a single car will increase from $7 to $15. The BLM held public meetings on a proposed fee increase in September and heard from the public for that entire month. The BLM said in a statement the increase is to meet preservation and recreation goals as well as to increase the visitor experience.

The fee increase will put prices at $15 for cars, $10 for motorcycles, $5 for bicycles and pedestrians and $20 for individual campsites.  A large section of the National Conservation Area will still be accessible for hiking and other recreational activities free of charge.
