Travel For Free When The National Park Service Invites The Public To All National Parks Fee-Free!
The National Park Service announced that the public will be invited to experience all national parks without entrance fees on four day in 2018.
The four entrance fee-free days for 2018 will be:
- January 15 – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
- April 21 – First Day of National Park Week
- September 22 – National Public Lands Day
- November 11 – Veterans Day
“National parks connect all of us with our country’s amazing nature, culture and history,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Michael T. Reynolds. “The days that we designate as fee-free for national parks mark opportunities for the public to participate in service projects, enjoy ranger-led programs, or just spend time with family and friends exploring these diverse and special places. We hope that these fee-free days offer visitors an extra incentive to enjoy their national parks in 2018.” Travel for free using the entrance fee waiver for the fee-free days. It does not cover amenity or user fees for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation, or special tours though
Another money saving tip is to purchase the annual $80 America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass which allows unlimited entrance to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas, including all national parks that charge an entrance fee. There are also free or discounted passes available for senior citizens, current members of the military, families of fourth grade students, and disabled citizens.
The National Park System includes more than 84 million acres and is comprised of 417 sites, including national parks, national historical parks, national monuments, national recreation areas, national battlefields, and national seashores. There is at least one national park in every state. Why not visit your national parks this year and explore all they have to offer? Take advantage of the entrance fee-free days.
