Arizona State Parks Seeking Public

(Phoenix, Arizona - July 24, 2013) - Arizona State Parks is seeking input from the public on proposed fee changes. The public comment period will be from July 24, 2013 through August 23, 2013.

The public is asked to give comments about the fee changes on the Arizona State Parks website at AZStateParks.com. Comments will also be accepted by mail written comments to Arizona State Parks, Attn: Proposed Fee Changes, 1300 W. Washington St., Phoenix, Arizona 85007.

The proposed changes would set a standardized range for per person cave tours at Kartchner Caverns State Park allowing for incremental and/or seasonal fee increases or decreases; create a non-electric camping fee range at the Kartchner Caverns State Park campground to allow for overflow camping during the busy season; and change the entrance fee at Red Rock State Park from a per vehicle rate to a per person rate.

The proposed changes to the fees are as follows:

· The per person fee of $22.95 for those aged 14 & up for the Rotunda/Big Room tours could change to a range of $18 to $30. The per person fee of $12.95 for children aged 7 to 13 for Rotunda/Big Room tours could change to a range of $9 to $15. Currently, there is not a per person fee for children aged 6 and younger for the Rotunda tour but a new range could be $0 to $8.

· Currently at Kartchner Caverns State Park there is not a fee for non-electric camping. The new non-electric fee range would be $15 to $25.

· Currently at Red Rock State Park the park entrance fee is on a per vehicle basis and ranges from $5 to $30. This would change to a per person fee of $2 to $10.
