Minnesota DNR recreation fee increases go into effect July 1

The Minnesota DNR reminds state park visitors, snowmobilers and all-terrain vehicle riders that fee increases will go into effect on July 1.

The cost of fishing and hunting licenses, including deer licenses, won’t increase until 2018.

One-day state park vehicle permits will increase $2 to $7 and year-round vehicle permits will increase $10 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, according to a DNR news release.

Also effective July 1, the fee to register ATVs and snowmobiles will increase and a $15 license will be required for ice shelters that do not collapse, fold or disassemble.

The cost of a resident fishing license will increase $3, from $22 to $25, and a resident deer license will increase $4, from $30 to $34. A complete list of license fee increases is available on the DNR website.
