SALT LAKE CITY — If you want to get out into nature in 2021 by visiting a Utah state park like Antelope Island or Kodachrome Basin, you’ll have to pay a little more for an annual pass, The Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Regular passes for Utah residents will cost $100 starting Friday, up from $75. And senior passes will rise from $30 to $50. The increase is the first in 25 years.

“Money generated by these fees will be spent on maintaining visitors’ access to the best possible outdoor facilities and experiences,” park officials wrote in a news statement.
Passes for residents of other states rose earlier this year and will remain at $150.
