FREE Entrance on National Park Service’s Birthday!


Did any of you take a trip to the Grand Canyon this summer? How about a scenic walk through the Appalachian Trail. Our country has over 400 parks across the U.S. and in honor of the National Park Service’s birthday, you can get a FREE entrance to all National Parks that normally charge an entrance on Saturday, August 25th.

Mark your calendar for these remaining entrance fee–free dates in 2017:

  • January 16: Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • February 20: Presidents’ Day
  • April 15-16 & 22-23: Weekends of National Park Week
  • August 25: National Park Service Birthday
  • September 30: National Public Lands Day
  • November 11-12: Veterans Day Weekend

National parks are America’s Best Idea, and there are 409 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 127 national parks that normally charge an entrance fee. The others are free all of the time. Plan your visit and enjoy our country’s history and nature.
