Under the new proposal, each vehicle would be charged $70 to enter the park, or almost three times as much as the current $25 fee, during peak season.
The Interior Department has proposed raising entrance fees at 17 of what it called "highly visited national parks" - including Grand Canyon National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park and others - only two years after a similar increase in fees at parks across the country. A pass to Shenandoah National Park now costs $25, while visits to some other parks, including the Grand Canyon, now cost $30.
The all-parks annual pass - the America the attractive pass - costs $80 and covers all federal recreation lands.
National Park Service spokesman Jeff Olson said the proposed increase would be a big boon for the estimated $11.5 billion maintenance backlog in park sites across the U.S. While it would by no means take care of everything, he said, it would go a long way toward getting park infrastructure back into shape.
At Acadia, which consistently ranks among the top 10 most-visited national parks, the "peak visitor season" would stretch from June 1 to October 31.

The new fee schedule would establish a $70-per-car peak season fee for the parks. "Targeted fee increases at some of our most-visited parks will help ensure that they are protected and preserved in perpetuity and that visitors enjoy a world-class experience that mirrors the awesome destinations they are visiting".
Minutolo credited Acadia staff with doing a tremendous job of trying to keep up with maintenance and infrastructure needs within the roughly 50,000-acre park.
While acknowledging the backlog in maintenance projects, Poliquin said he plans to discuss the matter with the park service in hopes it can find a solution that "will not disrupt the attraction to Acadia that the region relies on, and can ensure that ME families are able to still visit Acadia without a burdensome financial cost".
But she and Kaine said increasing entrance fees is not the way to address the issue.
