Fee Free Weekend!

America's Best Idea-the national parks-get even better this summer...it's free! We're inviting you to come by for a visit, to relax, to learn a little bit about this great nation...and to just some fun.

Tough economic times call for economical fun, and you can't beat America's 391 national parks for family time, fresh air, and opportunities to learn about our great country.

Entrance fees will be waived on three weekends:

  • June 20-21 (Father's Day weekend)
  • July 18-19
  • August 15-16

These three weekends are a chance for a free visit to a park that has an entrance fee-but every day-there are more than 200 national parks that never charge an entrance fee. Find one close to you at www.nps.gov.
