I received notification from GHSP that in 2014 there will be a fee increase for several aspects of park visitation and use. This increase is coming from somewhere “above” in the VA State Park system, so increases could be seen in other state parks across the Old Dominion as well. For camping, standard sites will stay the same but electric and water campsites will be $30. Parking fees will be $4 on weekdays and $5 on weekends.

GHSP is working to limit the increase for overnight backpackers as they have very limited use of park facilities. While this doesn’t help out visiting climbers (unless you are going on an overnight Mt. Rogers bouldering expedition, which you totally should), the increase will help out the state park system in the long run and that certainly is a good thing. The best way to go about this, if you are a frequent GHSP climber, is to cough up some dough and buy yourself a parking pass. A parking pass pays for itself after eight visits.money
