Olympic National Park will join national park units around the country in waiving entrance fees for all visitors to the park this weekend, November 10-12, in honor of U.S. Veterans and members of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Park visitors are reminded that the fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours, or use of concessions.
