For One Day, All U.S. National Parks Are Free to Enter

Did someone say road trip?


On Friday, August 25, all 59 U.S. National Parks will open their gates to the American public, waiving entry and commercial tour fees in celebration of the National Park Service’s 101-year anniversary. Normally, National Parks charge entry fees ranging from $3 to $30; free admission days are intended to make “America’s Best Idea” more accessible to citizens and tourists alike. The NPS has a handy online tool for finding National Parks nearest to you, but if you’re up for a road trip, we suggest visiting some lesser-known gems. The parks will remain open for one day; the next fee-free day is September 30, National Public Lands Day.
