Gettysburg

GETTYSBURG — Starting in March, it will cost $50 more to get a special use park permit at the Gettysburg National Military Park and the Eisenhower National Historic Site, the U.S. National Park Service announced Wednesday.

The cost of a permit at both places will increase from $50 to $100 starting March 15. The application fee is non-refundable and reimburses the park for expenses associated with processing the application.

The National Park Service is authorized to recover and retain the cost of processing applications for a wide variety of activities, including special events, ceremonies, and commercial filming. In 2016 the National Park Service processed more than 33,000 requests for permit.
