* The park accepts major credit cards. Sorry, checks are not accepted.
* Gate fees are waived for active military visitors with identification and for children six (6) and under.
* All fees paid go to support the park. No one profits financially.
* TMTC Family Membership ($60 first year, $50 renewal, $55 during the grace period) covers all dependants legally claimed on your Federal Income Tax return who are unmarried and no more than 19 years of age. Members pay a single gate fee of $15.00 that covers all family members. The first day's gate fee is waived when joining or renewing your membership. Other membership incentives may apply. Please contact TMTC to learn more.
* Gate fees for evening use after 5:00PM are waived for those camping. If a visitor arrives after 5:00PM and is camping overnight, that visitor will only be responsible for camping fees for that night and park fees the following day, not the park use fees for that day. For example, a visitor arrives at 5:15PM on Friday and is camping at the park for the weekend. That visitor will not have to pay park use fees for Friday, only camping for Friday and Saturday and the park usage fees for Saturday and Sunday.
* Camping (Cabin, RV, or primitive) for one night implies park usage fees for two days. Visitors leaving the park before 10:00AM may receive a one day park pass as a partial refund by stopping at the office.
* Cabins, bunkhouses, RV, or improved camp sites may be reserved in advance on-line, at the office, or by mailing a money order.

Minors Policy at BMRA

Minors (those under the age of 18) are not allowed on any TMTC premises (including BMRA) without adult supervision. The minor's legal parent/guardian must sign a waiver on-site for a minor to attend, watch, ride, or participate.

If a child is attending, watching, riding or participating with a responsible adult other than their legal parent/guardian, they must have on file (1) a copy of the TMTC waiver signed by their legal parent/guardian (if not signed on premises it must be notarized), and (2) a Notarized Letter stating that the minor has the right to be on the premises and participate in motorized recreation with the adult who is responsible for them.

In addition, TMTC strongly suggests that any responsible adult in charge of any minor carry with them either a notarized Temporary Guardianship or Medical Release Form for each minor in their care should an emergency should arise.
