National Park Passes:

If you plan to visit other parks with an entrance fee, learn more about the America the Beautiful - The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass series and fee-free days in the national parks. Although Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania does not sell America the Beautiful passes due to our status as a fee free park, we are supporters of this excellent program.
