Free Entry into America's National Parks

I am one of the fortunate people who has a Senior Pass into our National Parks and Monuments, but there are certain times each year EVERYONE can get free entry into the parks. I especially love the Grand Canyon National Park. Many families find it a bit pricey, yet the park should be on everyone's to-do list.

Here are the free entry dates for 2011 and 2012. Enjoy!

America's Best Idea - the national parks - gets even better with several fee-free days at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees.
Mark your calendar for the final fee-free days in 2011:
  • November 11-13
    Veterans Day weekend
Make plans now to visit the national parks on these 2012 fee-free dates:
  • January 14-16
    Martin Luther King Jr. weekend
  • April 21-29
    National Park Week
  • June 9
    Get Outdoors Day
  • September 29
    National Public Lands Day
  • November 10-12
    Veterans Day weekend
