The entrance fee for the Grand Canyon National Park is $25 for each private vehicle. For anyone that is riding a bike or motorcycle, is on foot or part of a non-commercial tour group, the entrance fee is $12 per person.

Because the park is so large, the admission fee is valid for seven days and includes access to both the South and North Rim. Unfortunately, refunds are not issued if bad weather presents itself.
