“America’s state and national park systems are popular destinations for RV trips,” according to the Campfire Canvass survey of RV owners by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association.
Of the RVers surveyed, “77% percent will visit a state park, and 74% plan to visit a national park. Nearly two-thirds (65%) plan to visit historic sites.”
With such an appreciation of America’s public lands, all RVers and other users have hundreds of opportunities to join the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, (and any other day) for “a day of service and celebration.”

Just one of the many public lands agencies, the Department of Interior have hundreds of ways for you and your children to learn and volunteer any day of the year.
“National Public Lands Day is a fee-free entrance day at many federal public lands including national parks. It’s a great opportunity to help a local or favorite public land near you and spend the rest of the day recreating or relaxing on the land. With free admission, feel free to bring a friend or make it a family outing, and enjoy the experience,” states Public Lands Day website.
Most parks are not waiving other “user fees” such as backcountry permits and camping fees.
