Visitors to Cedar Breaks National Monument will be allowed in free on Thursday, Aug. 25, as the facility celebrates the 78th anniversary of the National Park Service.
Entrance fees to the monument, 23 miles east of Cedar City, are $4 per vehicle. Only the entrance fee is being waived, according to Superintendent Tom Henry. Those staying at the Point Supreme Campground will still be assessed a $7 overnight fee.August is one of the busiest months at Cedar Breaks, but visiting drops off sharply after Labor Day, according to Henry, and the monument curtails its staffing and interpretive activities. The campground will remain open through Sept. 30 and visitor center until Oct. 10.
