Get Free Admission to U.S. National Parks Later this Month

National Park Week is America’s largest celebration of national heritage. It’s about making great connections, exploring amazing places, discovering open spaces, enjoying affordable vacations, and enhancing America’s best idea—the national parks. It’s all happening in your national parks.

Travelers who want to enjoy the warmer weather in the outdoors can take advantage of free admission to U.S. national parks for two weekends this month as part of National Park Week.

In 2017 fees will be waived April 15-16 and April 22-23 at parks that typically charge for entrance.

That means travelers can enjoy popular parks like California’s Yosemite National Park, Utah’s Bryce Canyon, and Florida’s Everglades National Park for free.

You will also be able to take part in events like ranger-led bike rides and talks throughout the parks, all while enjoying everything from giant sequoias to cascading waterfalls.

The parks will also be waiving fees this year on August 25 for the National Park Service’s birthday, on September 30 for National Public Lands Day, and on November 11-12 for Veteran’s Day.

For those planning to head to a park this April, there are plenty of hidden areas to enjoy in even the most popular parks.
