DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION AND NATURAL RESOURCES
Revisions to Schedule of Prices for State Parks
[50 Pa.B. 3903]
[Saturday, August 1, 2020]
A. Summary and Background
Under section 314 of the Conservation and Natural Resources Act (71 P.S. § 1340.314) and 17 Pa. Code § 11.224 (relating to prices), the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Department), Bureau of State Parks, will revise its price schedule for State park activities, uses and privileges effective August 1, 2020. The new schedule, which is in section D as follows, includes revisions to the schedule to add a transaction fee range for the Ohiopyle whitewater shuttle token.
The ending point for all whitewater river trips at Ohiopyle State Park (State Park), near Bruner Run, is 2 miles below the nearest parking area. Due to the sensitive nature of the resource, a 2-mile single lane paved road between Bruner Run and the nearest parking area at Old Mitchell Place is the only way in or out. Thesingle lane road is narrow, steep and very winding,making it hazardous for vehicles. Limited parking at the bottom is designed only for shuttle service, and the proximity of a crossing of the Great Allegheny Passage will compound parking issues and quickly become hazardous in terms of public safety if no shuttle service is provided.
To protect the natural resources and to ensure the safety of the State Park's thousands of boaters, the provision of a shuttle bus service is essential. This fee recovers a portion of the Department's cost of operating the shuttle.
For comparison purposes, the current price schedule along with the new price schedule can be found at the State Parks web site at http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/prices/index.htm. It can also be obtained by calling Pennsylvania State Parks Reservations and Information at (888) PA-PARKS. When the new price schedule becomes effective, it will be posted on the Department's State Parks previously listed web site.
