Timpanogos Cave National Monument is inviting public comment on a proposal to join an online reservation system for its summer cave tours.
Demands for cave tours exceeds capacity during summer weekends and holidays and is close to capacity on weekdays. In response, the monument is considering joining the National Recreation Reservation System, which would allow online reservations and expanded telephone sales for visitors planning a trip to the park, for a $3 service fee per ticket.
Park rangers currently sell advance tickets over the phone, but the demand has overwhelmed staff. Depending on public response to the online reservation proposal, it could be implemented as early as the summer of 2014.
