There are more than 400 parks available, with 120 national parks that normally charge an entrance fee. The others are free all the time. If you are looking to explore and see natures beauty AND save a little money doing so. Be sure to take advantage of these fee free days!
Just in case you weren’t aware, any fourth grade student can get a free annual pass through Every Kid in a Park Program, and active duty military and citizens with a permanent disability can also get free passes. More information can be found at America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass. We will most definitely take advantage of the 4th grader program next year!
