Event Details

Looking to get in a little nature, but are on a budget? How about visiting one of our nation’s national parks absolutely free.

To make it easier to experience America’s Great Outdoors, the National Park Service is waiving entrance fees (and even car fees), so visitors can enjoy all 394 national parks for free April 21-29, 2012.

Fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.

Normally, 146 of 394 national parks charge entrance fees ranging from $3 to $25. The other 246 do not charge for admission. The fee free waiver for National Park Week does not include other fees collected in advance or by contractors—such as fees charged for camping, reservations and use of concessions.
