Access Pass

America the beautiful access pass

United States citizens or permanent residents who are blind or permanently disabled may qualify for the Access Pass. This lifetime entrance pass admits the pass holder and passengers in a non-commercial vehicle free of charge to national parks, monuments, historic sites, recreation areas, and national wildlife refuges that charge an entrance fee. The pass also provides a 50% discount on federal use fees charged for facilities and services such as camping, swimming, parking, and boat launching (some restrictions may apply). To obtain a pass bring proof of medically determined permanent disability or eligibility for receiving benefits under federal law or state vocational agency to any federal fee area. Also available is the Senior Pass for United States citizens or permanent residents over the age of 62. This pass costs ten dollars and provides the same benefits as an Access Pass.
