Fees allow the park to provide interpretative services and facilities, and then maintain them, for park visitors. For example, seasonal park guides, special events and firing of the park’s cannon are all made possible through the collection offees.
The new entrance fee to the park will be $5 per adult or a maximum charge of $10.00 per vehicle and the receipt is honored for seven days. An adult is defined as age 16 and above. Visitors entering the park by motorcycle will be charged $5 per motorcycle. A Pea Ridge annual park pass is available for $20. The Interagency Annual Pass, Senior Pass and Access Pass are honored and sold/issued at the visitor center.
