There're some days during the year that people are allowed to visit any National Park for free.
Did you know that on the National Park Service's day, on August 25, people can visit any National park for free? Don't worry, there are more dates to visit a National Park for free this year!
On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson established the park service, and since then, every August 25 the National Park Service celebrates its day.
This year there're two more days to visit a National Park for free: on the National Public Lands Day on September 25 and Veterans Day on November 11.
You can visit any National park you want to, except the ones that still need a previous reservation. Some reservations can be made at Recreation.gov.
All year, some people have free admission to the parks like veterans, Gold Star Families, and U.S. citizens, and permanent residents with permanent disabilities. Also, children from Fourth Grade and their families have free admission for a year through the Every Kid Outdoors program. This program includes children from the Fifth grade that couldn't travel before due to the pandemic.
