Entrance Fees


Paying the entrance fee directly benefits the refuge. All proceeds are used to maintain and improve the visitor services program, directly benefiting you - the visitor!

A $2 per-vehicle, per-day fee is charged and an entry permit is required. Visitors may pay the fee and obtain the permit by following the directions at the self-service kiosk near the refuge’s entry gate.

During business hours, fees may be paid and permits obtained at the refuge headquarters. America the Beautiful Passports or a current Federal Duck stamp are also accepted in place of the daily use fee.
