America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass
The America the Beautiful pass series was created by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act and authorized by Congress in 2004. Participating agencies include the National Park Service, USDA Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Bureau of Reclamation. The pass series permits admission to fee areas managed by these agencies and replaces the Golden Eagle, Golden Age, and Golden Access Passport series.
Find out more about the America the Beautiful passes by contacting your local agency, such as a national park, or go to the America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass website.
