You’re invited to experience one of the wondrous National Parks for FREE on Saturday, April 21. Normally, 118 of the 417 national parks charge an entrance fee to get in, but the fee is waived in honor of National Parks week.
National Parks Week: What is it?
For one week each April, the National Park Service and National Park Foundation combine efforts to help you celebrate America’s great treasures. Throughout the week, participating parks will host special programs and ranger-led activities to promote the unique natural beauty within the National Park Service system.
National Park Service sites that normally charge an entrance fee will offer free admission on April 21 for all visitors. The entrance-fee waiver does not cover amenity or user fees, like camping, boat launch sites, transportation, or special tours. For more info, check out this state-by-state participating parks page.
So #FindYourPark, mark your calendar, and get out exploring on Saturday, April 21!
