Japser National Park: Fees

     
   
     

For just a small price, you can enjoy Jasper National Park, one of the finest parks in the world, and the largest of the Canadian Rockies. Think about it. For less that $10 per day, you get to enjoy 4,200 square miles of pristine land. I’m sure we’ve wasted that amount on far stupider things.

Fees for park passes contribute to the maintenance of Jasper’s scenic parkways, trails, public safety, day use areas, information and interpretation services of the Canadian Rockies park in which they were purchased.

Jasper National Park: What is a Park Pass?

The Park Pass is a permit that allows you to visit any national park in the Canadian Rockies. Park passes that are purchased in Jasper National Park can be used in other national parks during their validity periods.

Jasper National Park: Where can I buy the Park Pass?

Jasper National Park Gates are located at:

* East Park Gate – for visitors traveling west from Edmonton along the Yellowhead Highway (#16)

* West Park Gate – for visitors traveling east from Kamloops along the Yellowhead Highway (#16)

* Icefields Parkway Gate – for visitors traveling south along the Icefields Parkway (#93) towards Lake Louise

Jasper National Park: Who needs to purchase the Park Pass?

If you plan on stopping in Jasper National Park or the surrounding national parks, you must purchase the Park Pass. This includes stops at picnic sites and look-out points, and visits to the Village of Lake Louise and the towns of Banff and Jasper–whether backpacking Jasper’s backcountry, participating in the Canadian Rockies’ tours, or attending a conference.

You must also purchase a Park Pass if you travel along the Icefields Parkway (#93) between Lake Louise and Jasper.
