Free National Park Day | April 17, 2021
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. 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.

It’s that time of year again! Celebrate the NPS birthday as entrance fees are waived on August 25! Yep! FREE! Maybe we should have started with that? Do we still have your attention? Good. Find a park near you or explore in-park and virtual events hosted by parks across the country. If you could visit any park right now, which one would you choose?
