America The Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreation Lands Pass Program

The National Park Service is an important participant in the Interagency Pass Program which was created by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act and authorized by Congress in December 2004. Participating agencies include the National Park Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture - Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Bureau of Reclamation. The pass series, collectively known as the America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass, is shown below with a brief explanation of each.

Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park does not have an entrance fee, therefore we do not issue these passes.
