What is the entrance fee to Yellowstone National Park?

According to YellowstonePark.com, “For private, non-commercial vehicles, a 7-day pass to Yellowstone National Park costs $35/vehicle.” Take note that is also explains how the entrance fee into Grand Teton National Park and other areas is an additional $35/vehicle. If you happen to come in through Yellowstone’s South Entrance, you will have to pay both fees since the Grand Teton National Park would be the first spot.
