Love nature, history, culture, the outdoors? You can find all of that, and more, at the amazing United States National Parks. And you don’t even have to pay to experience the beauty and history of our national parks and sites if you visit on four special days in 2018.
All National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone who visits, so mark your calendar for these entrance fee–free dates in 2018:
- 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 are America’s best idea, and there are more than 400 parks available to everyone, every day. The fee-free days provide a great opportunity to visit a new place or an old favorite, especially one of the national parks that normally charge an entrance fee.
The others are free all the time. Note: The entrance fee waiver for fee-free days does not cover amenity or user fees for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation, or special tours.
