After analyzing the costs and benefits of the recreational fee program, park leadership determined that it is in the best interest of both Saratoga NHP and the public to eliminate entrance charges according to a press release sent to the media. The current entrance fees for vehicles ($5), pedestrians and cyclists ($3), and the park annual pass ($10) will remain in place until November 1.
Remaining revenue from the entrance fees will continue to be used to carry out mission-critical projects the release said, including the rehabilitation and maintenance of replica cannons on the battlefield landscape, and the management of interpretive vistas throughout the park.
The America the Beautiful–National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands passes will no longer be obtainable at Saratoga NHP, except for the following three: the free active-duty military annual pass; the access pass for U.S. citizens or permanent residents with permanent disabilities; and the 4th-grade Every Kid in a Park pass.
All America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Passes may still be purchased at most federal recreation sites that collect entrance fees or by applying here.
