Fees for two other camping areas managed by the Monticello Field Office will increase in September, according to the news release.
According to the new fee schedule, the BLM will charge a $10 overnight camping fee per site at Hamburger Rock and $15 per site at Sand Island. The Sand Island group site fee will increase to $25 a night plus $4 per person per night.
The agency will also implement new overnight use fees in the Indian Creek Corridor beginning on Sept. 1, according to the news release. Those fee changes include $5 per site nightly charge for the Creek Pasture and Superbowl campgrounds. New group site fees at Indian Creek Falls will be $25 plus $2 per person per night and new group site fees at Creek Pasture will be $25, plus $3 per person per night, according to the news release.
The fee increases were approved Sept. 10, by the Utah Recreation Resource Advisory Council.
A self-pay fee station will be located at campground entrances. Camping is on a first-come, first-served basis, and individual campsites cannot be reserved in advance. Larger group sites can still be reserved by calling the Monticello Field Office at 435-587-1500.
