Black Canyon at Gunnison National Park.

Western Colorado’s Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park will increase its entry fees this spring to fund infrastructure upgrades, park officials announced Monday.

Beginning in mid-April, the price of a 1- to 7-day pass for a vehicle will increase from $15 to $20, according to The Coloradoan. The price of an individual pass for a cyclist or person on foot will increase from $7 to $10.  Annual passes will increase from $30 to $40.

Motorcycle passes and campground fees will remain at 2017 levels.

Park officials sought public comment on the proposed fee increase in June 2017. Few people submitted comments, and most of them favored a fee increase, according to a news release from the park.
