BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Visitors to North Dakota's state parks will see an increase in fees over the next few months.

The daily vehicle pass will increase $2 to $7 effective Aug. 1. The daily entrance hadn't been increased for 17 years until the Legislature took action this year.

The annual pass is going up by $10 to $35. The new rate will take effect with the 2018 passes, which go on sale Nov. 1. Senior and veteran annual passes increase from $20 to $28. They're available only to North Dakota residents and also go on sale Nov. 1.

The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/2uBONwj ) says 100 percent of the entrance and camping fees are used to maintain and operate the North Dakota State Park System.
