FREE Admission to All 412 National Parks – August 25

Come experience the national parks! On five days in 2020, all National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone. In August, we get to celebrate the National Park Service’s 104th birthday on August 25th — so on that date, all 412 National Park Service units (Parks, Monuments, Historic Sites) will be open to the public for FREE on Tuesday, August 25. This includes entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. 

Before heading to any national park, monument or historic site, check its website first to learn its current entrance procedures, as many are operating with a similar reservation system. Also, even though you get free entry, other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included.

REMAINING FREE DAYS AT NATIONAL PARKS

National parks are America’s best idea, and there are more than 400 parks 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 national parks that normally charge an entrance fee. The others are free all the time. The entrance fee waiver for fee-free days does not cover amenity or user fees for activities such as camping, boat launches, transportation, or special tours.

The annual $80 America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass allows unlimited entrance to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas, including all national parks that normally charge an entrance fee. There are also free or discounted passes available for senior citizens, current members of the military, families of fourth-grade students, and disabled citizens. Learn more about the variety of passes offered by the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass series.
