There is no bad time to visit America’s National Parks including the breathtaking hoodoos of Bryce Canyon (Sunset Point pictured at right). And, it’s definitely not too early to start planning for April 18-19–the opening weekend of National Park Week–because these are free entry days.
Other National Park Service’s Fee Free days in 2015 included: Aug. 25 (the National Park Service’s 99th birthday), Sept. 26 (National Public Lands Day), and Nov. 11 (Veterans Day).
If you get hooked on visiting national parks–and you are not yet 62 years old and qualify for the Senior Pass–consider the $80 annual pass that provides entrance to all national parks, national wildlife refuges, national forests, and many other Federal lands-more than 2,000 in all. The America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass is offered free to all active duty military members and their dependents. Information on these and other pass options is available online.
*Fee waiver includes: entrance fees, commercial tour fees, and transportation entrance fees. Other fees such as reservation, camping, tours, concession and fees collected by third parties are not included unless stated otherwise.
