Canadian National Park user fee.

Be sure to add $19.60 per day to any overnight camping spot in a Canadian National Park to your budget.
There is a deal where by: pay for 7 days and you're good for one year.
Camp fee for full service at Kootenay National Park of Canada: $38.20
User fee: $19.60
Total: $57.80

Our Beautiful Country has its price.

Which is why I tend to stay at Forest Service Campsf in BC. $6 a night for a senior. No services. Outhouse and picnic table.

The annual passes are a pretty good deal , family/group $136.40 , adult $67.70 , senior $57.90
considering how many and how accessible they are for anyone between Alberta and the coast .

The national park passes can be purchased at any park, and are good for a year from when they are purchased (not just the rest of the calendar year). I believe that a portion of the fee paid goes to the park where it is purchased, so you might make a point of buying it at your favourite park if that is convenient.

I buy one every year. Between day trips skiing and mountain biking, to some longer stays, it is well worth it. Besides, if you travel the Icefields Parkway from Lake Louise to Jasper (one of the most beautiful drives in the world), you need to have at least a day pass.

Jim, you are right, it may be the most beautiful drives I've been on.

I'm not sure, but i don't think it applies the same at Long Beach & Green Point Campground. It's a National Park, run by BC Parks. They do have pretty steep parking rates though! More expensive than downtown Vancouver!

Just spent all of last week at Green Point CG in Pacific Rim Natl Park. My annual parks pass purchased in Jasper was perfectly acceptable.
