America's best idea - the national parks - gets even better with fee-free days at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees.
*This waiver covers entrance fees to the parks, only. Other fees such as camping, tours, etc. are not included under this waiver.
Here's a tip - many of your 397 national parks NEVER charge an entrance fee. So start planning your visit.
