Get More Parks For Less

There are many ways to get more bang for your entrance fee buck. For one, consider hitting a few national parks this year.

$80 America the Beautiful National Park Pass

The America the Beautiful National Parks pass is honored at all federally managed land units (national parks, national forests, national monuments, etc.) It’s good for a year from the month of purchase. You can pick one up at any national park entrance station.

$10 Senior Lifetime Pass

The best deal… national park lifetime passes for those 62 and older are only $10. If you have a young family, you might want to take the grandparents along on vacation. The whole car can get into the park with the senior pass and the memories created will be priceless.

Get in For Free

Active military receive free annual parks passes for themselves and their dependents when they show a military ID. Travelers under 16 years of age, as well as those visiting parks for educational or scientific purposes, also receive an entrance waiver. And if you have a permanent disability and show documentation, you get in for free and get a discount on camping. Is there a fourth grader in your family? In the 2015/16 season, fourth graders get in free.

Don’t fit those categories? Hit your favorite park on a free admission day. There are usually 6 free days every year. Check our event calendar for dates.
