For 2023 the National Park Service announced that Crater Lake National Park, Lava Beds National Monument, Lassen Volcanic National Park, and Whiskeytown National Recreation Area will honor each other’s annual passes. This will allow visitors to access all four parks and only have to pay for a single annual pass.

From the main portion of the website, guests can also purchase the America The Beautiful Pass, which provide entrance to all National Park Service Sites, Camping reservations and several other options.


During the winter months the North Entrance is unstaffed and digital passes must be purchased for entry. In winter, if you are entering the park on a snowmobile and only have one person in your party, purchase the individual/snowmobile rider pass.

If you are entering the park in a road-based vehicle or you are on snowmobiles and your party is larger than one person, purchase a private vehicle pass. Additional pass options are available at the park entrances for purchase with a credit or debit card only. NO CASH.
