“I want to thank the many Minnesotans and state lawmakers who supported these modest increases in parks, snowmobile, all terrain vehicle, hunting and fishing fees during the recent legislative session,” said Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “These fees will help maintain quality outdoor experiences for now and for future generations. We are fortunate to live in a state that offers such great outdoor opportunities and passionate citizenry that supports those resources.”
One day state park vehicle permits will increase $2, from $5 to $7, and year round vehicle permits will increase $10, from $25 to $35. These fees have not changed in more than a decade, and the increases were needed to continue to provide quality facilities and services at these important places at a level that maintains their nation leading status.
Also effective July 1,
the fee to register all terrain vehicles and snowmobiles will increase and a $15 license will be required for ice shelters that do not collapse, fold or disassemble.
“ATV and snowmobile clubs throughout the state provide a large and well maintained system of trails throughout Minnesota,” Landwehr said. “These trails are supported in large part by the user fees that contribute to the state’s grant in aid trail systems. High quality trails give snowmobilers and other motorized recreation enthusiasts a reason to travel, which bolsters tourism and strengthens local economies in Minnesota.”
